Mount Pleasant, Mar 27th and 1 other date
Peady Street Reserve, bordering Ballarat's most popular tourist attraction, Sovereign Hill, was once a weed infested wasteland. Beginning in 1982, the Friends Of Peady Street group, along with Mount Pleasant Primary School put in a huge effort revegetating, removing weeds and maintaining the area for a number of years. In recent times the Reserve has lain unattended, slowly succumbing to weeds such as Gorse and Periwinkle.
Conservation Volunteers Australia, together with Ballarat City Council's Engaging Communities Program are pleased to announce that further rejuvenation works are to be carried out at the site, including an upgrade of the current footpath to make access easier for prams and wheelchairs, continued weed control, planting and other maintenance.

Avalon, Apr 2nd and 1 other date
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.
