May I welcome you to Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek Inc. website.
If you would like to get involved with FOLKC or would like to be kept in touch with our plans and activities for the Kororoit Creek by email, join the mailing list below.
Hoping to see you 'Down the Creek' real soon.
No doubt - from reading the `Hobsons Bay Friends Groups conservation activities calendar', you will be aware that Sunday 5th March is `Clean-up Australia Day.'
Folkc will be participating and will be operating near the NTD 2017 site at the `Urban Forest' cnr Grieve Pde & Blackshaws Rd Altona North.
We will meet at the car park in Blackshaws Rd at 10:00am and will walk to the area where the rubbish is to be collected, along the old bitumen road leading under Grieve Pde and then along the Melb Water maintenance track running alongside Kororoit Creek.
All welcome - please remember to wear suitable clothing & footwear and bring a pair of cloves.
Looking forward to seeing you all on the day. Geoff.
The Melbourne Water crushed rock access track has been completed between Burgess Street drain and McArthurs Road in Altona North giving the community a walking trail between McArthurs Road and Blackshaws Road. Several falls in this area were the direct result of not having a proper path, Len for one has had a couple of falls here when out bird watching.
FOLKC last night, received the prestigious community group award for its work along Kororoit Creek at an awards and recognition night, as part of Melbourne Water’s 21st Birthday of the River Health Incentives Program (RHIP).
FOLKC National Tree day 2017 is to be held on 30 July 2017 and is to be the biggest tree day and celebration since our inception in 2001. 2300 trees are to be planted followed by a massive celebration incorporating the opening of the shared trail between Blackshaws Road and Barnes Road and the launch of the artwork along the Creek all courtesy of the Toyota legacy to the Altona North community.
On Saturday 5th Nov between 10.00 am & 12 noon, a small group from ERM Foundation have volunteered to help maintain a site, either by weeding the 2016 Tree Day Site or helping to prepare the adjoining site for the 2017 Tree Day.
Gerard Morel, Melbourne Water is organising the morning with Andrew Webster, Hobsons Bay, supplying the tool trailer and BBQ.
This is a great opportunity for FOLKC to alter our monthly maintenance event from Sunday to Saturday so as to join with the other volunteers.
So all welcome - meeting at car park opposite Croft Reserve in Blackshaws Road, then followed by a BBQ at 12.00 noon.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on SATURDAY 5th November.
