Spittal Pond work day with Marsh

On Friday, October 19th staff from the Department of Conservation Services led over 60 volunteers from Marsh and Guy Carpenter into Spittal Pond Nature Reserve for a day of work. The volunteers cut down invasive Casuarina and Brazil Pepper trees and dug up Asparagus fern. The invasives were replaced with endemic trees, such as Bermuda Cedar, Olivewood and Bermuda Palmetto, and natives like Bay Grape, Snowberry and Sea Oxeye.

The Department would like to thank Marsh and all their enthusiastic volunteers for their hard work.
