Parklands Rangers often discover old fire sites in the bush, with rusting metal leftovers which could be deadly for tires, feet or hooves.

Fortunately we have a great tool in our store of recycled useful items that is perfect for this job! An ancient magnet on string, swinging gently across the old fire site, picks up all of the old nails and other metal bits easily.

Our tip is that this works best in summer once the ground is dry – no mud to interfere and the nails positively leap up to the magnet!
