Returning an endangered Woodland to Spring Creek valley
From 9:30am on Sunday July 11th Surfers Appreciating Natural Environment (SANE), Surf Coast Energy Group (SCEG) and Torquay Landcare invite our community to join us in replanting nature back into Spring Creek valley at Ashmore Arts; a 35 acre site situated at 55B Ashmore Drive. We’ll be planting the highly rare, endemic and endangered Bellarine Yellow Gum, as well as indigenous canopy trees like Manna Gum, Swamp Gum, Blackwood and Bursaria.
Urban development and land clearing of ecosystems is a big problem globally. As a result nature is under immense pressure. However, a number of social researchers are now describing a new and growing movement where local communities are stepping in to the breach.
As this goes to press another 60 acre property has joined our woodland restoration project; and we’ll be planting there later on this spring. This blossoming community and local landholder partnership brings path-breaking opportunity to all of us; not just nature. It’s also reason to celebrate; the 100 year Spring Creek Valley Woodland community project has begun.
- Cr Liz Pattison will be joining us as our special guest to open the day. Morning tea provided.
- Under DHHS guidelines for C19 we will be limited to 50 people onsite at any one time.
Proudly supported by the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CCMA) under the ‘Wild Otways Initiative’ fund.
