Sleepy Snakes, Angry Ants and Weighty Rocks – Parklands Trail-care summary 06/05/2017
QPWS Trail Care Briefing

Hey everyone,

Really, really, really heavy rocks

We had a massive turnout for trail care today and the freshly cut-in access trail was polished off nicely within 3 hours.

The two creek crossings were armored with rock (really big, heavy ones!) and the single track and berms were shaped and packed down.

Highlights and experiences of the day were:

  • A really distracted snake didn’t realise that a vibrating plate machine or “Wacker Packer” was almost on it.
  • One team accidentally discovered a jumping ant nest. That caused a bit of excitement!
  • If you act really incompetent at cooking the BBQ, Sonja will take over and do it for you.
  • I was a bit stingy on the sausages… sorry about that everyone!

Thanks to Eugene from QPWS and Pete from Trailworx for your help and a big thanks to all our volunteers.
