First Planting for 2015 - Toyota - Kororoit Creek Nature Reserve - Sunday 7th June 9.00am -

Our first planting for this year is to take place at the Toyota Kororoit Creek Nature Reserve close to the Dohertys Road entrance. Now that rain has come - its perfect timing to commence what should be an excellent opportunity to keep on greening our local waterway during Winter & Autumn 2015. Hoping to see you all there to plant 250 trees n shrubs, followed by a BBQ prepared by our HBCC Conservation Dept. Remember to bring your gumboots should the ground be most suitable by being nice & wet. Followed by an update from our intrepid leader.

AT LAST THE TRUTH IS KNOWN -What our illustrious Leader has been doing down the creek. -

`Taking a Nap/Sleeping on the job'. Photographic evidence has come to light -no longer satisfied sleeping in the doghouse - has set up camp under a bush next to the picnic table on Kororoit Creek. Hopefully Andrew Webster our HBCC Senior Conservation Ranger will quickly arrange removal of these items so that our `Sleepy Headed Leader' can return to his kennel.

GREAT NEWS Kororoit Creek - Bird Surveys -

A milestone was achieved when the 110th Bird Species was sighted yesterday in the G J Hosken Reserve beside Kororoit Creek. The species was a `Purple-crowned Lorikeet' and more pictures of this tiny pale green lorikeet with the purple crown can be seen under the `Environment Tab - Birds'. It is with great pride that the creek with it's numerous plantings over the last 15 years is now providing great habitat for bird species to reside and also to use as a safe corridor on their migrations.
