Mount Rouse is an extinct volcano that lies on the edge of Penshurst, just twenty minutes south-east from Hamilton. The Mount Rouse summit provides panoramic views of the lava plain and extensive views of the surrounding district, including the Grampians. The mountain is a massive accumulation of scoria which rises 100m above the sorrounding volcanic plain.
Southern Grampians Shire and Conservation Volunteers are aiming to improve the natural diversity of native plants and animals on this special mountain by carrying out weed control and maintaining walking track areas. Volunteers will learn how about invasive spiecies and techniques involved in controling them.
This truely is a special and unique spot to enjoy the day doing something great for your local environment.
Bring along a packed lunch and water and make sure you wear a long sleeve shirt, long pants and sturdy footwear.
Meet at Flagstaff Hill carpark in Warrnambool at 9am or arrange with Team Leader to meet on site.
