Wellington Point Mural installed

IMG 9116 Small

The Migratory Shorebird Mural is up!
This mural was installed this week in the Wellington Point Village as part of our street art program. Wellington Point is home for these amazing creatures who fly thousands of miles non stop before they return to our valuable intertidal wetlands . The migratory birds are a special part of Redlands and we are so fortunate to have RAMSAR recognised wetlands as our backyard such as the Geoff Skinner wetlands and the sand bar that stretches out to precious King Island . Hopefully the mural will raise awareness of these amazing long distance fliers as a valuable part of our unique Redlands environment .... which is something every survey shows how much we love! The mural brightens up a once drab wall while educating !!

Replanting in Bibury street

Bibury street planting

Trees, trees and more trees to be planted to increase conservation area along Hilliard's Creek in Geoff Skinner Wetlands.
Yesterday I again walked the area at 2-8 Bibury Street Wellington Point that runs along the western bank of Hilliard's Creek.
This land, the lot on the map under the text box with Council land, is about to be revegetated which is very important to this valued corridor that leads into the internationally recognised RAMSAR site Geoff Skinner Wetlands
The local bushcare group that have been working in this area I think for nearly 20 years are very excited at the news
Once vegetation is established a walkway will be opened through the area so we can all enjoy this extra space.
It is satisfying to see trees being planted to enhance the area and provide safety , food and a refuge for our urban wildlife .

Ormiston House Mother's Day 2017

Mother's Day at Ormiston House is the perfect setting of elegance and all things delicate from a by gone era to spoil Mums.

This year was again a busy day for volunteers as over 270 high teas were served on the veranda over looking Moreton Bay.  Children played in the magnificent heritage gardens  while generations of families chatted and laughed as they enjoyed their delicious high teas and the company of their mothers.

I know as volunteers we enjoyed making everyone's day special and by the photos you can see how important our heritage and special places are to our local and visiting families.
