Newsletter September 2016

The AGM is to be held at Rockleigh on Saturday 8th October at 1:30pm.

Grace Hodder, who is studying Diamond Firetails in the Mt Lofty Ranges with sites on our property, will be the guest speaker. Some of us will be camping on Friday and over the weekend and we would be delighted for anyone to join us for all or some of that time. We will be holding a working bee on the Saturday morning to remove guards from trees. This will begin at about 9am but anyone can join in at any time. Most of the guards are corflute (plastic) but some are metal mesh. If you wish to tackle the latter please bring gloves, pliers and /or wire-cutters.

I hope to put up a display of photos showing the effect of the fire on Rockleigh. If you have prints of trees or areas before and after the fire I would be keen to display them so please bring them along.

One of the important tasks of the AGM is to elect two members to the Board of Directors. Margaret Brown and Tom Reeves are the two directors retiring by rotation. They are of course free to renominate. So I now call for nominations for the positions of Director.

Once in the gate at Rockleigh turn immediately to the right and follow the fence line to the eastern boundary. The track continues to loop around to the campsite. Pink ribbons will show you are on the right track.
