Trust For Nature

Hello All

Hope you have all rested and spent quality with family and friends over the Easter weekends.

We just wanted to let our newest members know of two very important properties within our beautiful area, that have been gifted to the Trust for Nature.

Currently the Trust for Nature owns 47 properties within Victoria, two of which are found in Heathmont!  Those properties are Uambi and Dexter’s Bush.

The Trust for Nature will manage these properties now and well into the future.

Importantly, once the Trust for Nature acquires properties (either through donation or purchase) the local friends’ groups and/or committees are integral to the management of the properties which assist to enhance and maintain the conservation values.

Introduction to Bushcare and Morning Tea – 1 April 2012

Calling all Heathmontians!

Hopefully by now you have received a little invitation flyer in your post box requesting your company at the Heathmont Bushcare welcome and morning tea. This will be held at one of our sites, Uambi (Allens Road, Heathmont).

Our group is busily working on making all the necessary arrangements and we are looking forward to spending the morning doing some hands on bushcare work, meeting new members and having a morning tea.

We welcome all new members and if you don’t have any experience, not to worry!  Our group will help you through the morning and show you how it’s all done!

So come on down and get your hands dirty and don’t forget to bring your coffee cup.  We hope to see you there.

If you have any questions please email:

Hello and Welcome

Hello fellow Heathmontian’s

Welcome to the Heathmont Bushcare website, where you will find all information relating to the sites that are managed by the team,  information about open days, the monthly meet ups and general news relating to Heathmont’s beautiful bushland.

Formed in mid 1994, the group is still going strong and has spent countless hours preserving and restoring the remnant bush that still exists in Heathmont.

If you would like to be involved, we need your help and you would be very welcome to come on the first Sunday of each month.  Anyone can help and we provide the necessary tools for the morning.  Dont forget that we all enjoy  some delicious home cooking, a cup of tea or coffee and a sense of accomplishment.
