Friends of Scott Creek Conservation Park
During our Tuesday working bee last month, our Friends group was visited by a film crew from Totally Wild, Network Ten’s national television series aimed at 8-16 year olds. The show covers stories on all sorts of environment and cultural topics in a fun and informative way. The themes of the show about the Friends of Scott Creek Conservation Park included our work conserving threatened plant and animal species, restoration of creeks and wetlands, identifying and controlling invasive weeds, and the social aspects of the group and giving something back to nature. Our thanks to Sophie, the Production Co-Ordinator who arranged the segment, the rest of the Totally Wild team and the film crew in particular for their interest in our group and our work in the park, and for making it a fun afternoon in Almanda Creek. Sophie grew up in Scott Creek, so has a special interest in the area.
After the show has gone to air, we will receive a copy of the segment to place on our website and Facebook page.
On that, the Friends have recently set up their own Facebook page. To see what is currently happening in the park, with regular posts and photos, check it out on https://www.facebook.com/Friends-of-Scott-Creek-Conservation-Park-1820989551538033/.
Anyone wanting information about the group or park, or wanting to get involved in any of the Friends’ activities, can contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our very informative website www.friendsofscottcreek.org.au.
All working bees meet at the 9.00am at the Almanda Car Park on Dorset Vale Road (unless there is a MLR fire ban or very wet weather). To attend bird banding, contact the coordinator Don Reid on 83882123.
