Avalon, May 28th and 2 other dates
Avalon Coastal Reserve lies on the north side of Corio Bay and contains a variety of habitats, including intertidal mudflats and sandflats, seagrass beds, saltmarsh, small stands of White Mangroves, reed beds, salt evaporation lagoons of the Avalon saltworks and the grass filtration paddocks and sewerage treatment lagoons of the Werribee Treatment Complex.
The fauna values at Avalon Beach are of considerable significance. Notable fauna include the Altona Skipper Butterfly and many species of birds. Of great significance is the Orange-bellied Parrot which feeds on the saltmarsh vegetation during the late autumn and winter months. This species is significantly prone to future threats likely to result in extinction unless measures are taken to protect the habitats it depends on for survival.
Some of the notable flora that occurs at Avalon includes the Salt Club-sedge and Grey Glasswort which are both unusual for the region.
However, Avalon is also a popular location for visitors with a number of houses and fishing shacks, a beach, boat ramp, numerous jetties and rock groynes across the low beach. All this activity has an impact on the habitat values of the area.
Your assistance is needed to help maintain the high environmental values of the area through woody weed control and rubbish collection.
Stieglitz, May 28th
The Brisbane Ranges is a low range of mountains dissected by rocky gullies, the unusual geology of which has preserved plants that have long since vanished from other parts of the region.
The Ranges support a rich variety of wildlife with around 619 native plant species (about one fifth of Victoria’s total) found in the area, many of which are either rare or remote from their normal localities.
Join us as we help Parks Victoria GPS map and remove invasive Sallow Wattle from this environmentally unique and fragile ecosystem.
