  • Skills Development contracts have been extended to May 2014.
  • 2 x new EPWP team workers started this month.
  • New hand railing put in at the Bird Information Centre. The building was plastered
    and also painted. Looking fresh!
  • New wooden boards put in at S3 canal as the grid was stolen. The wooden boards
    have holes to let water out, and keep water hyacinth trapped.
  • Removed Yucca plants, also testing a new herbicide on this plant type.
  • Fire in Pelican Park Reserve. Quite intense, burnt roughly 3 – 4 hectares.
  • Installed 1 x raft as a perching platform for pan S4.

See what we have been doing this month.
