Welcome to this weeks Bulletin,
One of things I love about the CLLMM region is that wherever I go there is always something that amazes me. This week I have had the pleasure of visiting the Point Sturt Land Care and the Hindmarsh Island Land Care Groups. I was astounded at the success of the many community revegetation sites and the vision, hard work and commitment from local community members, not to mention the significance the vegetation is having in providing a safe haven for our local habitat. If you are interested in finding out about a local Land Care Group or want to know more about land care near you contact the Lakes Hubs Office on 85370808.
My camera has become a permanent fixture when I’m out and about. Although Robynne Barratt took this great photo of a Great Egret near the foreshore near Meningie.
