Victoria’s beautiful native grasslands were the ecosystems that attracted European settlement in the 1800s. As a result, they are one of our most diminished natural splendours and resources. But they still live in our area and can be seen and helped. Join Newstead Landcare for their October field day as Nathan Wong, PhD researcher into native grasslands and Grassy Ecosystem Co-ordinator for the Trust for Nature, introduces us to some rare treasures. Nathan will take us to native grassland remnants in 3 very different states of being, and will help us to understand the processes at work and what the grasslands provide. A rare opportunity indeed!
The field day will be this Sunday October 23rd, car pooling from Newstead Community Centre at 9.30 am and returning at about 12.15pm. All are welcome to attend (gold coin donations appreciated). Bring a mug for morning tea. A very brief AGM will be held during morning tea, before we return to Newstead.
