Snare Hunt & Litter Pick October 2014

Snare Hunt and Litter Pick Oct 2014It was wonderful to see such support for this event and Thank You to all that participated, committee, community and honourary offices.

We met at the gazebo and split into 2 groups, one for snare hunt and one for litter picking. The Litter picking group targeted a property on Bond Street and reports received indicate that 15 bags of rubbish was collected.

The snare hunt group also litter picked on route and found information that will lead to possible legal action against one dumper.

The weather was not ideal and the cooler, damper conditions were welcomed and did not deter people from participating in this event.

A bushpig bolted past Cee-Jay and Ali in the thick bush. The dense vegetation made access difficult.

The area from Scarey Cliffs, next the Mdloti river to the N2 was infested with alien vegetation:
Water hyacyth, a forest of Litsea, lantana, pepper trees, bug weed and triffid weed
