The protector and champion of Kororoit Creek in Altona, Altona North, Brooklyn and Sunshine, Victoria, Australia.
The recent rain has soaked the ground near the memorial park so we intend to plant some trees and scrubs close to the creek on Sunday 4 May. It is possible, but unlikely, that we may have to change the activities if we have very hot weather from now and little if no rain. I will send another message in the week before the 4 May to confirm what we will be doing and how to get to the site.
Libby will be cooking a BBQ for us at the end of the activities. (Simon)
Please note - as it is better to commence plantings towards the middle of the year due to dry conditions - there will no plantings done on our scheduled planting day for this Sunday 6th April. If anyone is desirous of turning up to offer a little help, Len will be down the creek (say from 10.00am) below John Steet, in the vicinity of the memorial picnic table , continuing with rubbish clean-up left over from the Australia Clean Up Day. Come along - enjoy the fresh air and lets do a little more for the environment. With a little sunshine we may even get to see our friendly Cunningham Skinks.
A very successful Clean Up Australia Day (Sunday 2/3/2014)was held along Lower Kororoit Creek and adjoining parks. Volunteers worked tirelessly and managed to overfill the large skip that was provided by Hobsons Bay Parks. Believe everyone enjoyed the BBQ. On behalf of the environment a very special thanks to all who attended.
The first get together for FOLKC members and other interested people will be a walk and talk along the Kororoit Creek on Sunday 16th February.
Simon is leading this event, meeting at Silverton Close, Laverton North Mel Ref 40:F 9 at 10am. The walk will be along the Creek over Federation Trail to Geelong Road and following on the west side of the Creek to Grieve Parade. We will be viewing the results of our plantings over the past two years and will then visiting this year's National Tree Day site. The walk will then revert to the east side of the Creek and follow below John Street where we will have a BBQ lunch. After lunch the walk will finish at Barnes Road where the walkers will be transported back to their cars in Laverton North.
Please note that this activity day replaces the...
Hobsons Bay Council have recently pegged out a length of trail from McArthurs Road below the tip site possibly in preparation for concreting a 400 metre section. Mysteriously, it appears the trail is off set from the existing path and would mean extra filling and intrusion into the riparian zone - Surely this is a mistake - See photo.
