Afternoon tea on Chinaman Creek

Muckleford Catchment Landcare would like to invite you to an afternoon tea and creek walk on Saturday October 25 to mark the end of first stage of the Chinaman Creek Plan.

Five landowners on the creek have contributed to blackberry control work and the establishment of a habitat corridor. This is a significant achievement and the afternoon tea is in part to thank them for their participation.

We will be meeting at Brett Tyler and Liz Caffin’s property on Lewis Road. This should be of great interest to anyone who would like to see close-up, the dramatic changes brought about to the environment of the creek as a result of a successful revegetation project and dedicated weed control. It is a place of great beauty and diversity these days.

There will also be a short address from a Connecting Country representative on their Woodland Birds Project. Connecting Country is partner with Muckleford Landcare in the Chinaman Creek Project. Enhancing the biodiversity of the creek will help create new habitat and aid the survival of their priority ‘Feathered Five’.

We will offer tea, coffee and light refreshments but you may like to bring your own folding chair.

Where: Lewis Road at the point where the road crosses Chinaman Creek. Our banner will be hanging on the fence. Simply step over the fence to enter the property. Parking space is limited on Lewis Road. You might prefer to park on Woodbrook Road and walk the 100 meters west along Lewis Road to the creek crossing. (*Please do not enter the Chinaman Creek House gate further west on Lewis Road as they have guests in residence for the weekend).

When: Saturday October 25, 2.30-4 pm.

We would appreciate a RSVP if you intend to come along. Call Paul at 0408 566 909.

We hope you can join us for this relaxed, informative spring community gathering and creek walk and information session.
