Rovers Provide Service as Part of Moot

On Monday 6th January 2014, approximately 50 Rovers from across Australia attended a Service Day at the Beelair Regional Park, south of Perth, Western Australia. It was organised as part of the 19th Australian Rover Moot, held from 30th December 2013 - 10th January 2014.

The service at the Regional Park involved removing cotton plants from around the billabong, in the wetland area within the park. The cotton had been planted many years before and had taken over within the environment, as they are not native to the area the Rovers set about pulling them out of the ground.

As the service was provided in 40 degree heat with no large trees for shade, the Rovers were only able to provide two hours of service. During this short period of time, a large amount of cotton plants were removed from within an approximately 4 hectare area.

The local conservation groups were very thankful for the work the Rovers provided, as unfortunately they don't often have much help from outside groups or individuals. All the Rovers who attended had a fun, hot and dirty day helping to restore the local wetlands to their natural state.
