16 Years of environmental passion has now seen wonderful results. -

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. [Read more...]

1st May 2016 - Monthly Maintenance Day- 10.00am - 12.00 noon. McArthurs Rd Altona North. -

Hi all environmental friends -FOLKC will be holding our monthly maintenance day at last years National Tree Day site at the bottom of McArthurs Rd North Altona.. What a hugh success this planting has been - the trees are literally `taking off' - most of the plants are well above the tree guards thanks to the regular watering that has occurred during the drought months over summer. It is now time to remove the plastic tree guards - due to the size of some of these plants, we will need to cut the plastic guards, so bring along a small knife or stanley knife for this job. A B-B-Q will be held by our friendly Ranger, Libby from Hobsons Bay Parks. All welcome, so come along for a friendly environmental day.

Maintenance Day - Sunday 3rd April 2016. 10.00am to 12.00noon -

Hi- Folkc will be holding their monthly (1st Sunday) maintenance day at the Dohertys Rd entrance to the Kororoit Creek Nature Reserve (rear of Toyota) . Good news that the rhagodias are now popping out of the top of the tree guards and as these plants are `low-growing spreading shrubs', it is now time to remove the tree guards. As usual Libby from HBCC will be attending to organize a well-earned `cuppa & nibbles' for those hungry/thirsty souls that need refreshment. All welcome - hoping to see you again `Down by the Creek'
