Reports from Groups

Port Phillip Conservation Council
Trevor will look into being our representative.

Mordialloc Creek Community (Boating & Fishing)
Wayne is very concerned about the sediment and litter in the Creek and its tributaries. Is currently making a video.
The Council are installing 2 Gross Pollutant Traps, a third is needed.
Wayne took a tour with representatives from Kingston Council, DEECA, EPA and Melbourne Water. Attenborough Park to George Woods Reserve to Settlement Creek (inadequate nets) to Airport to Heatherton. This was to demonstrate to the authorities what ends up eventually in the Creek and out to Port Phillip.

The Grange
The new Conservation in Kingston publication has advertised working bees.
It is easy to subscribe to and makes an interesting read.

Other Business

Lead Aware NZ are assessing the amount of lead in children’s crockery cups. This is due to relaxed standards in Australia, which don’t have regulations specifically for children’s products.
