Valley of 1000 trees in the Valley of 1000 Hills

Part of the combined planting

Last week one of the hidden valleys at the back of Terry and Janet’s ‘Three Sisters’ property became the valley of a thousand trees. Earlier in the week the ANZ as part of a corporate planting program put 370 trees in the ground. Last Sunday the Strath Creek Landcare Group planted another 650  trees. A veritable forest in a week.

On a brilliantly sunny day the Sunday event was over in no time with over 30 volunteers including kids and dogs knocking over the task well before lunch. As per SCLG tradition the event culminated in a fabulous lunch with fabulous company.

And the secret to our success – pretend the Hamilton Planter is a pogo stick and get the kids (and some adults) to see how many jumps (and planting holes) can be made without stopping.

Apparently the answer is 5.

Talking about Quolls

Are there quolls in the Strath Creek/Flowerdale area? If so, what do they look like, what are their habitat and food requirements, what is their life span and general behaviour and what threats do they face? All these questions and more will be answered at a talk about the Spotted-tailed Quoll at Kinglake West next Thursday evening. Full details are on the flyer below.

It’s been and gone

Well the group’s AGM has been and gone. A great crowd turned out. Even some ex-Streakers (i.e. Strath Creekers) turned up. Sam Strong gave a great presentation on “How Myth and Language influence successful restoration and environmental management: Learning from two bushfires”, particularly pertinent to those in the room.

A new committee was elected and well, it looked very much like the old committee, just greyer, with a few position shuffles. John and Marilyn catered a fantastic lunch again and a good time was had by all.


Susan King and Tom Tehan

Congratulations go to Susan King our new vice-president and winner of this year’s Em Tehan Cup for outstanding service to Strath Creek Landcare.
