This workshop to be held at Coffs Harbour Regional Landcare Nursery is a great opportunity for anyone who is interested in growing their own native plants. You will learn techniques and tips on how to grow native plants successfully. This workshop will teach and demonstrate the basic principles of propagating a variety of native seeds including the right growing media and containers to use. Other propagation techniques such as division and cuttings will also be discussed. The focus will be on native species that grow locally.
Please register by Thursday 20th June.
The birds and their habitats of Green Bluff Headland and South Moonee Forest have been studied for the past two years under a grant from the NSW Environmental Trust.
This morning will present the results of bird monitoring that was undertaken as part of that project, to see how the local birds utilise the existing and the repaired habitat.
Participants will visit some of the 15 sites surveyed for forest and wetland birds in 2017-2018. Over 1400 birds were recorded from more than 80 species by volunteers working with a local ornithologist. This area is one of the last remaining local mountains to sea wildlife corridors.
This is a great opportunity to learn more about the types of habitat preferred by our local birds.
