Mt Oak Bio Blitz - 12 - 18 January 2015

 

 

 

 

Mt Oak is a 1140 Ha property, on Ngarigo country south of Canberra, of which over 80% is now covenanted under an agreement with NPWS (NSW). It was purchased in 1977/78 with funds raised at the second Confest and is now managed by the Mt Oak Community Association with the title being held in trust by the Free Land Association. It has had a long and varied history. Sheep were removed many years ago, weed control for some species has been undertaken, regular bird surveys are done by the CBOC and a 250+ species herbarium is maintained. The land presents an interesting opportunity for further studies and surveys.


We are inviting interested naturalists, ecologists, botanists, twitchers, herpetologists, entomologists and bryologists to visit the woodlands and grasslands of Mt Oak and be part of the Mt Oak Biobushblitz 12-18th Jan 2015. See more information in this flyer.

Squirrel Glider Project in the GER Slopes to Summit Partnership

             

 

 

A nest box project targeting Squirrel Gliders in the more ‘built-up’ areas of Thurgoona and Splitters Creek (on the outskirts of Albury) has just been launched by the Albury Conservation Company, one of the nine Slopes to Summit (S2S) partner organisations.

The program will see 100 state-of-the-art nest boxes designed and constructed by Thurgoona Men’s Shed and supplied and installed between now and May 2015. This is a great opportunity for local residents to learn about and directly help to conserve a NSW-listed threatened species in their own backyard. The project is offering a nest box and installation at no cost to approved applicants.

If you live in Thurgoona or Splitters Creek, or know someone who does, please get involved in the project. For all the details follow the link below.

See the flyer: http://k2c.org.au/files/squirrel_glider_urban_nest_box_project_poster_final.pdf

The project is being gratefully funded by the NSW Government’s Environmental Trust via a Great Eastern Ranges Initiative Grant received by the Slopes to Summit (S2S) partnership. The grant will also deliver a third ‘S2S BioBlitz’ as well as a ‘Big Tree Competition’ in the first half of 2015–more details coming soon!

Great Eastern Ranges - Crossing the Divide video

 

 

For those of you who have not already seen it, this is the link to the video “Crossing the Divide” -https://vimeo.com/111962676

It is a great overview of the successful three day field trip we ran ahead of the IUCN World Parks Congress.

The video will be really important as we promote the GER as a globally significant program to our current and future supporters.


Yellow Box Dispatch - ACT Conservation Council Newsletter - Late November 2014
I’ve heard local beekeepers are looking forward to the Yellow-Box trees flowering over the next few weeks. The trees need warm nights to blossom and conditions are now about right. It’s interesting that while all honey will candy (unless it’s been heat-treated - cooked - to change its structure) yellow-box honey will take about two years!
