Parks get by with a little help from their friends

Ashleigh Coombs - Thursday, October 11, 2018

The 31st Friends of Parks Forum was held recently at Stenhouse Bay Hall in Yorke Peninsula’s Innes National Park, with the theme ‘Preserving our Past and Protecting our Future’.

More than 150 people attended the forum, which ran from the 14th to the 16th of September, including the Member for Narungga, Fraser Ellis MP who opened the event.

Narungga man Chris Angove and his family gave a traditional Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony and led the delegates on a cultural bus tour.

Innes National Park Ranger in Charge Mark Davison said the biannual forum was a culmination of two years of planning by the Friends of Innes National Park and Natural Resources Northern and Yorke staff, with support from the Friends of Troubridge Island and the Friends of Althorpe Island.

Friends of Newland Head Conservation Park celebrate 30 years of voluntary conservation work

Ashleigh Coombs - Friday, August 17, 2018

On Saturday 11th August the Friends of Newland Head Conservation Park braved cold conditions to celebrate their 30th anniversary in Waitpinga Campground. The volunteer group held their initial meeting in 1988, and this special day marked 30 years of voluntary conservation work in the park. This group of very dedicated volunteers assist with many important park projects including weed control, revegetation and most recently, monitoring Western Pygmy Possums to study population and distribution in the area.

The Park is a 1,152 ha Conservation Park situated at Waitpinga, 15 minutes from Victor Harbor. The Park is renowned for its superb fishing and surfing beaches, rare and endangered species of plants, birds and animals, stunning coastline and beautiful walking trails. A huge draw card for many visitors - local, state-wide and national. The annual visitation is estimated at 100,000 people.

The Minister for Environment and Water, David Speirs, also attended the day. He gave out awards along with Senior Ranger Seiji Iwao and member of the Friends group, Winston Syson. A number of members also celebrated 20, 10 and 5 years of volunteering with the group. Along with these awards, previous members Ron and Pam Taylor were also acknowledged for 20 years of outstanding contribution to environmental conservation in the park. They were key founders of the group and their passion and commitment to the park were second to none (see photo).

Group members gathered at Dennis Hut in Waitpinga campground for the giving of awards by Minister Speirs, followed by a BBQ lunch. A small special ceremony was also held in the afternoon to remember previous member Robin Rowett who passed away 15 months earlier. Robin was a very dedicated and enthusiastic volunteer, so the group used this opportunity to celebrate his contribution to the park and passion for the area. Family members planted trees to commemorate Robin in a special place held dear to his heart overlooking spectacular views of the ocean.

The Friends of Newland Head Conservation Park are supported by Department for Environment and Water National Parks staff and Friends of Parks Inc., along with the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM Volunteer Support Program. The 30 year celebration event was funded by the Friends Group with support by the Volunteer Support Program and NRM Levy.

The Friends of Newland Head Conservation Park currently hold weekly Frieday working bees in the park and monthly working bees on a Saturday. In addition, the group participate in 6-weekly monitoring surveys of Western Pygmy Possums checking nesting boxes for activity. For anyone who would like to get involved in this fantastic group of local volunteers, please contact Simon and Lee on simonandlee01@gmail.com.

Aldinga Washpool & Blue Lagoon revegetation plan

Ashleigh Coombs - Friday, May 04, 2018

A draft revegetation plan for Aldinga Washpool & Blue Lagoon and surrounding areas has been developed. The plan has been informed by detailed botanical and ecological assessments that provided up-to-date data on vegetation types and locations of significant species in the area.

The proposed planting site consists of several land parcels owned by a number of state and local government bodies and historically has been used for many purposes. The aim of the draft plan is to guide pest plant control and revegetation works that will restore and maintain the health of the site.

The proposed revegetation aims to reflect the natural open character of the coastal wetland, including low sedge and saltmarsh plantings, tussock grasslands, dune and coastal heathland and shrubland. Some open woodland tree plantings similar to the adjacent Aldinga Scrub Conservation Park are also proposed. You can view the draft revegetation plan by opening the attachment or by typing this address into your internet browser https://bit.ly/2Km73PY.

We are seeking local community feedback on the plan and would like to hear from you.

Please join us at a community meeting where you can ask questions and submit your feedback in person.

WHEN: Tuesday 29 May 7–8 pm

WHERE: Sellicks Beach Community Hall, William Eatts Reserve Riviera Road, Sellicks Beach.

RSVP is essential. Phone Seascapes Coordinator Damian Moroney on 8273 9116 or email Damian.Moroney@sa.gov.au.

If you are unable to attend the community meeting or would prefer to submit your feedback electronically, please email it to Damian.Moroney@sa.gov.au.
