Friends of Ferdinand Street Reserve

Although relatively small, Ferdinand Reserve hosts the locally rare Forest Red Gum (Eucalyptus tereticornis) and Blackbutt (Eucalyptus pilularis) trees. In addition to these species, Ferdinand also plays a critical role in preserving endangered and sensitive ecological communities.

The Friends of Ferdinand Street Reserve work diligently to control persistent herbacious weeds, as well as annual weeds, in addition to fostering and nurturing the native species that grow mostly along the sloped areas of the reserve.

This site offers volunteers a fantastic opportunity to learn about maintaining the careful ecological balance within marsh/swamp lands, as well as gain a better understanding of general ecology concepts.

This Bushcare group meets on the second Wednesday of each month, at around 1.00pm.
