Melton Environment Group's monthly newsletter for October 2017 is available.
National Bird Week 2017 will take place from Wednesday 25 October to Friday 3rd November.
View the Bird Week Calendar for details on each event.
Bird Walks will be held on the 4th weekend of the month alternating from Saturday and Sunday. This will enable people to participate in both MEG & Eynesbury bird Group walks if they wish. Bird walk sites will be allocated to hopefully coincide with best wildflower displays.
The Striped Legless Lizard, listed as vulnerable nationally and endangered in Victoria, is not only threatened with local extinction in Melbourne, but 30 individual lizards currently held by Zoos Victoria now face a future in captivity as the sad end to a sorry tale of conservation ‘fails’ as Melbourne rapidly grows.
