When a chainsaw can create habitat! Trees at the Reserves entrance that have been deemed structurally unsound have been given a second lease on life as habitat trees.
They have been trimmed back to a safe standard and will be carved out to create large, ready-made homes for our local birds and other wildlife by the very talented qualified arborist Leighton Stace from Stace Tree Care. The rest will be mulched for our Nature Play and Outdoor Learning Space. This takes upcycling to the next level!
All happening as part of our larger 'Grow a Hollow' Project.
Please be aware of the works, happening today and tomorrow.

Exciting approach to two big issues: risk management/ habitat retention and creation

Hopefully more kookaburra babies

Maybe they can cut a few more trees back so you can actually see the crater......🤔

SOoooo pleased to see this information.Thank you all. Gives me ideas for my own trees.

Excellent idea the more habitat homes the better. ♥️♥️

This mornings fauna monitoring on the reserves with Trevor from the Geelong Field Nats was a great opportunity to learn more about our local bats and was enjoyed by all of us who attended. No luck with the Elliot traps but one of the harp traps produced the find of the morning.... a female micro bat that Trevor identified as a Little Forest bat that weighed only 4.5gm! INCREDIBLE.
Be sure to be at the Lower Shelter tomorrow and/or Sunday morning at 8.00am to join Trevor to check out the Elliot traps and the harp traps.
A big well done to Fran for organising this monitoring program on behalf of the FoML and the Mt Leura Management Committee.
A few photos from this morning are added.
