Free habitat creation project

Council has engaged Ecology & Restoration Australia (ERA) to create artificial hollows in standing live or dead trees, using a suite of tools, which can suit native hollow-dependent species including all kinds of possums, gliders and birds.

We are inviting private landholders in the storm impacted area, through an Expression of Interest process, to participate in this unique program.

To nominate, please complete the Expression of Interest form via Ecology & Restoration Australia. 

Storm Recovery Choir

Council was pleased to present choir sessions with Cat Moser during March at the Blackwood Community Hall.
