Pambalong Field Day
LIONS IN ACTION: RESTORATION WORKS
For a fourth consecutive year, the Lions Club of Jesmond and the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) are combining forces to continue to restore bush land at Pambalong Nature Reserve.
Three sections have been re-planted with dramatic effect, despite the best efforts of the wallabies and the weather.
This year the NRMA has provided a grant to help with the cost of this project.
Club Project Chair, Chris Bullock said “Volunteers are welcome to join the Club members at Pambalong Nature Reserve on Sat 16 May commencing at 8.30am for the next planting”.
The NRMA Grant has an educational component. With staff provided by NPWS, Minmi Public School (on Wed 13 May) and Bishop Tyrell Anglican College (Tues 12 May) will be planting native trees at Blue Gum Hills Reserve. In addition to this they will participate in a Discovery Activity focusing on indigenous culture.
Jesmond Club President, Debra Johnson, said “We are delighted with the support of the NRMA this year as their contribution will substantially strengthen the partnership that already exists with the National Parks and Wildlife Service.”
The Lions Club of Jesmond has 35 members and meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 7:00pm at Hunter Wetlands Centre. Lions clubs are a group of men and women who identify needs within the community and work together to fulfill those needs.
