Here are the minutes from the Committee’s recent meeting. As mentioned in the minutes, on Sunday, Dave, Chris, Nev and Beth did a walk on Bassett Creek to ground-truth our upcoming project. We will now start talking to landholders about restoration activities on the Stage 2 section of the creek, as supported by the North Central CMA. Stay tuned for more news on this project, as well as the timetable for our upcoming community education events. MCLG minutes Feb 2018

It’s on tonight everyone – 5pm at The Hub garden. The garden is behind The Hub building which is on 233 Barker Street, but the entry to the garden is on Templeton Street.
Eleanor, Albi, Theo, Neville and Beth braved the unusually cold morning to survey the Castlemaine golf course. We found 155 birds in total and 44 different species.
The highlight occurred the next day when Deb Worland and her son Chris (regular bird monitors at the golf course) gave us a tip-off about some powerful owls and we all ran back to sight and record them in the survey as well. Eleanor and Albi took some beautiful photos http://www.gypsytwitchers.com
If people are interested, we could make this a whole of landcare group activity next year – we’ll put it on the agenda at the AGM.
Muckleford Landcare have an article in the latest edition of the CMA’s newsletter – North Central chat- December 2017.
The AGM has been postponed until Thursday 14th December 2018, 5pm in the Hub Garden, Templeton Street, Castlemaine. The Hub Garden sits behind The Hub on the corner of Barker and Templeton Streets.
We will be electing members to the committee, and discussing projects for 2018.
