It was great to catch up with Ian Falconer from Friends of Aranda Bushland today. Ian guided us through the frost hollows of Aranda Bushland, part of a larger walk 'Frost Hollow to Forest'. We saw the Friends great erosion control work– using logs across waterways to slow water movement, trapping sediment and creating a chain-of-ponds. Over time the extent of gullying should be lessened. The Friends are actively involved in revegetation and Ian pointed a stand of Snow Gums (Eucalyptus pauciflora) that were planted 5 years ago.
