After extensive rabbit eradication, weed and fire hazard removal, the work of rehabilitating the Wildlife Art Museum of Australia site in Halls Gap is set to commence.
The rehabilitation work will start with a plantout this Sunday, commencing at 9am.
Phil Williams of Pomonal Wildflower Nursery has donated hundreds of local heathy woodland species seedlings to re-vegetate the native covenant area on site under the supervision of WAMA's principle botanist Neil Marriott.
WAMA encourages volunteers to help plant out on the day, bringing gloves, shovel, trowel, morning tea and lunch. The group will supply tea and coffee and the barbecue will be alight.
WAMA members are expecting to get all the plants in and plant guards erected in about three to four hours, giving them time for a wander around the property.
Visitors are welcome to visit the site and find out more about WAMA.
"We have several teams of highly qualified, dedicated people working in the background on the complex issues of finance, design and the bureaucratic hurdles of this project," WAMA Patron Glenda Lewin said.
"We also need to build a strong team of supporters here, in our community, to support those teams. Planting something is a beautiful way for anyone to have their own part of this project as it grows."
The site will be open to volunteers and visitors from 8am until 2pm and anyone is welcome to come and have a look.
WAMA is on the corner of Halls Gap - Ararat Road and Neal Road. For further enquiries please phone Catherine on 0412 548 915 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
