The society looks after the arboretum at McLaren Falls, labelling and planting new trees.
We hold working parties at McLaren Falls, planting, identification & GPS plotting location, nursey work with trees.
We meet at the Information centre at noon on Wednesdays with our packed lunches. After lunch and a discussion about what’s on for the afternoon we set to it. Usually no more than three hours in total. We bring our own tools, and plenty of cheerful enthusiasm. The afternoon is cancelled if the weather looks guaranteed to be wet.
A volunteer doesn’t have to be knowledgeable about trees, or be a competent gardener, just to be willing to follow instructions. One of our current members has said she loves coming, not just because the park is such a lovely place, but because she learns something every week.
