The protector and champion of Kororoit Creek in Altona, Altona North, Brooklyn and Sunshine, Victoria, Australia.
At a recent FOLKC meeting it was decide to offer Hobsons Bay City Council $20,000 to get the very necessary designs for the shared trail between Geelong Road and Blackshaws Road completed.
Wyndham Council recently announced that it is about to undertake the building of the shared trail from Federation Trail to Geelong Road, Brooklyn, connecting to Hobsons Bay near the historic 1880’s bluestone bridge. The plan is for the trail to be complete by mid 2014 when FOLKC will plant out an additional 500 trees to complete this section trail that we commenced planting 2011.
Despite the goat attack on our trees during 2012, a large number of plants survived the ordeal and are looking terrific.
FOLKC wishes to thank Wyndham City Council and its officers for the assistance and generous support given during the development of this section of trail made possible through the Department of Sustainability Vision for Werribee Plains grant to reinstate the Kororoit Creek corridor.
Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek (FOLKC) have announced that its important 2013 celebration of the Planet Ark / Toyota sponsored National Tree Day 2013 along Kororoit Creek will be held on Sunday 28th July.
