The Annual General Meeting of the Friends of the Box Ironbark Forests will be held at the Castlemaine Continuing Education Centre, Templeton St Castlemaine, at 7.30 pm on Monday August 12. Guest speaker Ian O’Halloran will speak on the land restoration project under way at Post Office Hill Chewton. This fascinating 22 hectare site between the Post Office and the railway line is full of surprises, and the work of the Post Office Hill Action Group is a model for groups anywhere wanting to give a little corner of the planet a better chance.

Ian O'Halloran talks to the POHAG troops at Post Office Hill: the area is of interest geologically, and for its signs of Aboriginal and gold era history, as well as for a surprising wealth of plant species.

Members wishing to stand for positions on the FOBIF committee should forward nominations signed by two members of the Friends to Box 322 Castlemaine before that date.
