All the best to everyone for 2019!
Looks like there is a good opportunity to promote the good work of Heathmont Bushcare at the Bedford Park Community Garden Festival on 20 Jan 2019, 10am-1pm. Please let me know if you are interested in assisting by responding through the Heathmont Bushcare email firstname.lastname@example.org
Hold the date!
Heathmont Bushcare’s AGM will be on Thursday 13 December at David and Kay Cole’s house – starting at 7.30.
Keynote speaker Gwyn Davies on ‘Our Ambivalent Relationships with Wildlife in Greater Melbourne’.
BYO drink and nibbles!
FFDC has just launched its first crowdfunding campaign in aid of two skinks (one of which is vulnerable in the area); the Swamp Skink and Glossy Grass Skink.
We’re about to embark on survey work along the creek in order to ascertain their populations, and then look to improve their habitat.
We have until the 28th of October to raise $4,000. This is an all or nothing campaign, and if we don’t raise the money we get nothing from Pozible. This is also being run in conjunction with DELWP who will match dollar for dollar the pledges up to our target.
The crowdfunding link is here: https://www.pozible.com/project/save-our-skinks-3
The Heathmont Bushcare website is taking a short break and will return in January 2019, with all the latest news and working bee dates. Our email address will still be monitored, so please shout out to us.
A reminder that we have three working bees left for 2019 and our Christmas Bush market will be in early December. Details will be emailed out.
