Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 10 August at 7.30 pm at the Mt Ommaney Library, Dandenong Road, Mt Ommaney.

We are pleased to announce that Dan Franks, BCC operations on deer control, and Shane Millard of BCC Environmental management will be bringing us up to date on that very hot topic, the management of deer in the Centenary Suburbs.

The presentation will be followed by supper, then the AGM.  


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…
