Saving Six Supporters

The volunteer Cairnlea Conservation Reserves Committee of Management and the Friends of Iramoo completed  a successful crowdfunding campaign on 15 December 2015 raising a total of $13,800 to save six endangered grassland species. This was then matched with an addition $12,000 from the Department of Environment, Land, Water, Planning.

The funding help us implement our most successful year on on grounds works so far,  including planting a total of 20,445 wildflowers, sowing 7.7kg of seed and undertaking 17 hectares of weed control*. This project showcased that community based conservation within urban reserves can save species.

    • Hi Bill
      The first half of the day (Wildflower Planting launch of the Friends of Brimbanks Connies Cards) is a Pimelea Grassland Reserve off Pimelea Terrace in St Albans.

      The second half of the day (the book launch) is at Iramoo Conservation and Research Centre off McKecknie Street, St Albans. Also known as building IJ at Victoria University St Albans Campus.

      Hope to see you there.
