FLYING FOX COUNTING

Monthly counts of the Grey-headed Flying-Fox camp at the Glebe Park Lagoon are conducted on the third Friday of each month when the flying-foxes are present (the season usually lasts from October to May, peaking in late Summer). For the past six years the monthly counts have fed data into the National Flying-Fox Monitoring Program coordinated by the CSIRO. Counts are conducted at dusk during the fly-out with volunteers gathering about half an hour before the fly-out at the shelter shed on the southern side of the lagoon (parking is available on
Rose Street).
New volunteers are always welcome.

MONTHLY WORKING BEE

Monthly Working Bees – undertaken as part of our Habitat Enhancement Project, volunteers gather on the first Saturday of each month to work to improve the habitat at the Glebe Park Lagoon by removing weed species, replanting natives and mulching cleared areas.
Working bees usually start at 9:30am (earlier in Summer) with volunteers gathering at the shelter shed on the southern side of the lagoon and usually finish around 11:30am (can be earlier in Summer) after some shared morning tea.
New volunteers are always welcome.
