Survey about the new park

Pink Fingers

The Canadian Forest on the edge of Ballarat East is about to be made into a park. If you know the area and would like to make an online submission, the process is still open and will close on the 30th April 2015  link to the survey.

The online submission also contains survey questions which will give the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP) a clearer picture about how people use or want to use the forest. This will be the last chance to have your say about the boundaries, the establishment of the park and your use of the park.

 

 

The wide world of moths

from Wombat Forestcare ……………………”We have our next ‘You, Me & Biodiversity’ lecture coming up. Saturday 16 May, 1.30 to 3.30pm at the Trentham Neighbourhood Centre.

This talk should be really interesting – Steve Williams on Moths. Did you know that there are over 140 families of moths with somewhere between 20,000 and 30,000 species but only about 400 butterfly species. Many moth species are undescribed.

Steve found a new species on his property at Eppalock and we will learn about moths in our environment.”
