Give and Take -

Around 50 community members volunteered to GIVE of their time this morning to plant 400 indigenous trees and shrubs along part of the ‘Missing Link in the Kororoit Creek Trail’. While planting near Federation Trail, someone viewing the BBQ bits and pieces on the historic blue stone bridge at Geelong Road decided to TAKE a car frig that held the meat for the BBQ! Despite this unfortunate occurrence, a very successful morning was had by all as they celebrated the planting on the Kororoit Creek corridor and the opening of a section of trail linking Hobsons Bay from the blue stone bridge to the Federation Trail.

Bushcare's Major Day Out -

FOLKC invites all to Bushcare's Major Day Out celebration along the Kororoit Creek on 21 September 2014 where we plan to plant 400+ trees & shrubs. This special day will bring together Wyndham City Council, City West Water, other interested community groups and FOLKC members to celebrate the opening of the latest section of shared path along Kororoit Creek. The design of the path was made possible through a grant from Vision for Werribee Plains project group and construction funded by Wyndham City Council. THis day has been generously sponsored by City West Water and is part of the 'Greening The West' program. Meeting at the historic bluestone bridge below Clelland Road, Brooklyn, at 10am, this day should be another memorable event along the fabulous Kororoit Creek Corridor. All very welcome...
