AGM invite and July News

Our 2016 AGM: Saturday the 23rd July

Woodend Landcare’s restoration plan for Lake Earnshaw and the Macedon Ranges Koala Project will be the focus for our 2016 Annual General Meeting. The informative afternoon will kick off at 1.30 pm on Saturday the 23rd of July at the Woodend Neighbourhood House.

Woodend Landcare’s Thursday Crew are very passionate about the restoration of Lake Earnshaw and they have recently developed an inspiring draft plan for the area – including future revegetation sites, paths and possibly a sheltered picnic table. We will launch the draft plan at the AGM and invite your feedback and input.

The Macedon Ranges Koala Project is an initiative of local wildlife rescuers that has been operating since 2009. The project aims to give a local picture of koala populations and better insight into their threats and guidance for management. You can submit sightings online at What have been the findings and what can we do to help? Come along on the 23rd to find out!

RSVPs to the AGM are appreciated for catering purposes to We look forward to seeing you there.
