This has been another busy quarter with more submission writing, requests to speak at two meetings and an invitation from Council for the League to become involved in a Government promoted tree planting program on the foreshore. Please watch the local paper for further information if you would like to join in this worthwhile activity.
On Sunday 3rd September 1989 League Members will be hosting a tour of the Creek and Foreshore Parks with the Society for Growing Native Plants. Please join us at the Mordialloc Pier at 2pm if you would like to walk with us. The aim is to further the planting of native trees in these parks.
We would be interested to hear your views about the work done by Council on the Beaumaris cliff tops, especially the ten foot wide path through this sensitive area.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns about our local environment!
Resolved that the correspondence be received.
