Fund My Neighbourhood opportunity

A PROPOSAL to create a permanent indigenous flora display overlooking the Woorabinda lake is now in the running for state funding. The project has been accepted under the State Government’s two-year, $40 mln Fund My Neighbourhood program. With the backing of the Adelaide Hills Council, the Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves are seeking a $65,000 grant under the FMN project to finance the initial weeding, layout and planting. FMN press release provides details of this opportunity. Please take a moment to vote for our project, at https://fundmyneighbourhood.yoursay.sa.gov.au/rounds/fund-my-neighbourhood-2017/ideas/woorabinda-indigenous-flora-display.

Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves Incorporated AGM
This year’s AGM will be held on Friday 17th November, 2017 at 6:30pm, in the Environment Centre at Woorabinda.

This year’s AGM speaker will be Penny Paton on what Native Vegetation Heritage Agreements have achieved in the retention of native vegetation in SA. Her talk is particularly topical, as the Adelaide Hills Council recently decided to submit an application for Native Vegetation Heritage Agreements to cover Woorabinda Bushland Reserves. Penny has been a member of the Native Vegetation Council for the past ten years; the body which oversees such agreements and the protection and clearance of natural vegetation under the ‘Native Vegetation Act 1991’. She also has direct experience, as her parents have a Heritage Agreement over their property. 

Penny’s talk will be followed by a BYO BBQ. Everyone is welcome, including people who are not yet members.

Working Bee dates have been updated for this year.

A Woorabinda walking trails map is available.
