Lend a hand at the lake – Lake Linlithgow working bee this Saturday from 1pm

For those in the southern Grampians area, there’s a working bee on this Saturday from 1pm til 4pm at Lake Linlithgow (Jenawarra) and there’s plenty to keep us busy!

Lake Linlithgow is a 1000 hectare saline lake on the volcanic plains and hosts migratory waterbirds and some rare and threatened flora, including the EPBC-listed Salt-lake Tussock-grass (Poa sallacustris).

The weather’s looking pretty good for this time of year (fingers crossed) and we’ll be out there treating smaller boxthorn, searching for Spiny Rush seedlings and other problem weeds and dealing with weedy grasses such as Tall Wheat Grass and Phalaris.

If you’d like to lend a hand, learn some new bushcare skills, or just hear more about the lake and meet some dedicated volunteers, we’ll meet at the point in the south (Lake Rd off Hamilton-Chatsworth Rd) at 1pm.

For more details, contact Jonathan at or call 0402 6633 63.
