Welcome to December FoG News!

 Last month the activities at Glenthorne Farm were restricted due to the time of year. The grey cracking clay soil has dried out and become extremely hard. We watered the Acacia acenaecia, Hardenbergia and Callistemon seedlings along the fence line and weeded the Native Grass Compound. Despite the periods of hot weather many of the grasses and the Calocephalus citreus (Lemon Beauty Heads) are doing well.


2015 Christmas Event

Tuesday 15th December (Next Tuesday) Come along and enjoy reminising over the year, meet new people, and

At the Seacliffe Hotel, (On the corner of Wheatland Ave and The Esplande, Seacliffe) starting at 6:30pm. 



December Enjoyment Day

Our next Enjoyment Day is Sunday, 20th December, 2015 from 10.00am until 2.00pm, and all are welcome.

Join us for a walk along the creek line to check on past revegetation efforts and to also survey the bird life. Bird records collected by the Friends over a number of years, currently number around 90 different species and numbers have been increasing in recent years. It is always interesting to see what water birds are currently utilising the large dam area as the water levels fall over summer. We will also be collecting seed for propagation in the coming weeks.

We usually have tea or coffee and a discussion of recent events from around 1.00 pm.

We will be on site from 10.00am to 2.00pm and if you arrive after 10.00am please call Alan on 0411 595 910 for entry instructions.

 2016 Activities

2016 is fast approaching and we have a number of special events in the pipeline, despite our continued development of our revegetation areas and the Native Grass Compound.
