Volunteers Needed!

Parks Victoria has asked for help with track clearing on the AAWT, between Mt Wills Hut and Omeo Highway (approximately 6km in length).

When: Labour Day weekend, Friday 10th – Monday 13th March
(Arrive and set up Friday, work Saturday and Sunday, pack up and depart Monday)

There will be a variety of work to be undertaken, requiring a range of skills and experiences. Jobs include chainsawing, brush cutting, clearing of debris, cut and paint of blackberries and replacing/adding markers.

Ideally we would like 20-30 people with mixed skills, with only 3 or 4 people requiring chainsaw qualifications.

We will meet at the Omeo Historic Park beside Parks Victoria Office Main Street (Great Alpine Road) in Omeo at 12pm for lunch and leave at approximately 1.30pm for Mt Wills.

We will be camping at Mt Wills Hut and any vehicle that is AWD (Subaru) or 4WD should be able to travel along the maintenance track to the hut. If not, the vehicle can be left at the Tallangatta Ski Club.

You will need to bring your breakfasts, lunches, dinners and evening drinks. The Saturday evening meal will be a BBQ compliments of Parks Victoria.

For further information or to indicate your interest in coming along, please contact David directly.
