This area of bushland has been improved as a result of a State Government ‘Communities for Nature’ grant. Within this area of bushland there are significant remnant indigenous species. It also abuts the habitat of the powerful owl that is an endangered species. During the breeding season a powerful owl can eat a brushtail possum in one night!
Students from Project 9 and the Conservation and Land Management group have removed weeds such as pittosporum, blackberries and watsonia. They have created paths to provide access for classes and have written letters to educate our neighbours about the educational value of this land.
Project 9 students worked with Dr Martin Fluker from Victoria University to select a sight for a Fluker Post. Photos take from the top of the post can be emailed to Dr Fluker to be put on our site so that we can see the changes that occur over a period of time. Google search The Fluker Post Project and look at our album. This area is part of our Outdoor Classroom and be used across the curriculum as a teaching space and resource. This is learning in ‘the real world’.
