- Some of Victoria’s last remaining “Valley Heathy Forest”.
- Over 400 mature indigenous trees.
- Around 15 species of native ground covers and grasses.
- Habitat for many native Birds including the endangered Powerful Owl.
- A vital part of the fragile Gardiner’s Creek / Blackburn Lake Eco system.
This land is under threat from development. You can let our politicians know that Government Funding is needed now as:
- Public ownership of the site is critical for the survival of Victoria’s rare “Valley Heathy Forest”, the Powerful Owls and all their mates.
- This site is part of a green corridor linking “A Mega Mile Of Bushland”.
- Green corridors are the life-support systems of our Bushland areas.
- Public ownership will enhance the Blackburn Lake precinct’s important role in educating us about our natural environment and a sustainable future.
- There is an opportunity to purchase the site on Central Road currently owned by the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
- The City of Whitehorse Public Open Space ratio, particularly in Nunawading, is one of the lowest in Metropolitan Melbourne.
- Private funding has already been pledged.
