September 16, 2017 Visitor Area There is an upgrade going on for the track to Russell Falls which has involved an impact on the area behind the visitor centre where materials and vehicles have been working. The area is being revegetated and cleaned up and a temporary fence is needed to allow better recovery. Picket stakes and wiring needs to be installed along the boundary of the area and it is proposed that this task be carried out on this working bee.  
October 21, 2017 Lake Nicholls Track Several tasks are to be carried out on the track between Beatties Tarn and the crest of the Windy Moor.  Above Lake Rayner the track crosses an area of rock that needs some modifications to both make the route more obvious and easier to negotiate.  There is also some pruning required.   There is aloo potential to make minor improvements to the track and the section that goes to Beatties Tarn Work site details
