Nesting Box Installations
Nest boxes for sugar gliders and kookaburras installed in Glenfern.
At the end of September the Glenfern nest box team installed two kookaburra and six sugar glider boxes. We also reinstalled one parrot boxes that had housed a feral bee colony. We now have 20 boxes installed throughout the reserve. Glenfern has already supplied data and photos to the Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research (DELWP) regarding feral bee occupation of nest boxes. Many thanks to our great team, particularly Rob, Doug and Lincoln for the tree work.
Melbourne Water Award
Glenfern has been given an Award!
Yesterday Melbourne Water presented Glenfern with an Exceptional Contribution Award for our conservation work along Ferny Creek. Well done to all the volunteers and supporters that have helped with the project over the years. The Award was given to us yesterday as a surprise by Jared Polkinghorne from Melbourne Water. Jared was visiting Glenfern to review work being done with Melbourne Water grants.
