Volunteers were back at Eimeo this month, doing some follow-up weed removal after a group of enthusiastic kindy students tore through the site at the start of April.

With the bulk of the Guinea Grass removed, our Coastcarers were able to focus on removing the garden escapees, and Urena Burr that remained at the site. As we worked, good numbers of native seedlings were seen growing amongst the weeds. With these weeds removed, these seedlings will have a better chance of surviving to establish at the site.
