Members of the Southern Otways Landcare Network (SOLN) were welcomed to ANGAIR recently to inspect our propagation facility and the ANGAIR office and library. They were also interested to hear about how we operate and recruit new members as a volunteer conservation organisation.

SOLN represents four Landcare groups that manage mainly private properties whilst ANGAIR is concerned with public land management. They wanted to learn about how we store and collect seed and any difficulties we have with mid and under story plant species propagation. SOLN is looking to improve vegetation mixes in farm plantings especially on steep terrain. The topography creates many different vegetation communities and challenges for them in getting the mix right. They are also experimenting with various management techniques on revegetation sites to control weeds and improve understorey values.

I believe they enjoyed their interaction with the propagation team and had a lively discussion on the drive home!

Recycle your forest tubes and cartons

The ANGAIR Plant Propagation Group is very short of forest tubes and always like more cartons. Please leave them at the ANGAIR Office. Thanks in advance for your support.
