For many, the summer months mean holidays and kicking back with your feet up. For Landcarers, getting stuck into a good working bee is the perfect relaxation.
This January, keen bird lovers were invited by UTAS Avian Club and UTAS Biological Sciences Club to join them for some bird watching and surveys at Lune Plain - one of the best birding spots in southern Tasmania!
They spent the day amongst beautiful buttongrass, and spotted an eastern ground parrot and duckbill orchids.

In December, Friends of Wellington Park successfully created a new route to replace the degraded, old (and slightly dangerous) track linking Thark Ridge to Devil's Throne. 'A surprisingly 210 metres of track was made by the five of us, which was quite and achievement. We find the work very satisfying and enjoyable.'

This summer, Friends of Mt Field (FOMF) worked to clear some of the minor overgrowths along the Lake Fenton track, mostly 'Bauera'. This track is one of the first tracks that FOMF worked on and have spent over 50 days in total on this track!
