9607480316 4aa23e9817 zOn Thursday 12 May Jutta Godwin gave a highly relevant and interesting talk on creating habitat for small birds

Jutta is a naturalist with strong ties to the catchments of Brisbane’s Inner West.  Her many years of involvement with the Cubberla-Witton Catchments Network have always had a focus on protecting biodiversity through habitat repair and enhancement and on the establishment of wildlife corridors, a task of particular importance in urbanised areas.  
Small, delicate birds are increasingly disappearing from urban areas, the main reason being that their habitats have been altered by people with buildings and backyards.  Often the changes favour noisy miners and other 'bully birds'.

Jutta provided us with plenty of ideas on how to bring back the small birds by altering our backyards and other urban spaces.

Our next meeting will be held in August.  To keep informed of what's happening, subscribe to our mailing list.  Simply contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

 Save the trees from deer damage with knitted tree protectors !

 Feral deer often strip the bark off native trees in urban bushland and also off street trees around Brisbane. 

Jindalee Bushcare Group, which restores large areas of the Mount Ommaney Bushland Reserve, is putting
knitted protectors around trees whose trunks have been partially stripped by feeding deer. This is to
prevent further damage to the trees and to save them from being completely ringbarked which would kill
them. So far, this experiment has been successful!
There are so many affected trees, that the group would  appreciate some help in knitting the protectors.
Get out your yarn left over from knitting winter  and start knitting! Or you can crochet…
