Foresters Wood activity day

The Forestry Australia WA Branch would like to invite members, friends and family to participate in an activity day.

Foresters Wood, Glenoran (20 km west of Manjimup)
Date: Saturday 7 October | Time: 9:30am

The activity day will include:

  • Pruning
  • Weed control and preparation for the fire season
  • Burning heaps
  • Thinning oak sapling thickets

Bring a picnic lunch and thermos, a few basic tools if you have them (pruning saw, rakehoe, small chainsaw if you have one) and personal protective equipment (gloves, boots, eye protection). This is a great opportunity to enjoy socialising in the outdoors while making a contribution to improving the ever-popular Foresters Wood. New members are particularly welcome. There are plenty of further local attractions in the Donnelly Valley area if you want to make a full weekend of your visit.

RSVP to WA Branch Secretary Peter Beatty
