It was announced today that the State Government will contribute $650,000 towards the completion of of the Shared Trail in Kororoit Creek.
This contribution together with the previously announced funding by Toyota should see the completion of Stages 1, 2 & 3 hopefully by July next year (NTD 2017).
Thanks to Toyota and their fantastic initiative of contributing to the trail network and their enthusiastic support of FOLKC over the past 14 years.
The re-vegetation of Lower Kororoit Creek by our enthusiastic environmental friends has been a great success story - particularly for our `feathered friends'.
We have recently printed a Poster (1.7m x 0.7m) courtesy of Toyota, and have installed same on the Notice Board at Barnes Road Bridge.
So next time in the area please call in and have a look at the list together with photos of the 116 species.
