Elster Creek - indigenous flora guide
The Glen Eira Environment Group recently launched a website detailing indigenous flora in the Elster Creek catchment area-see links bottom right.
This group has done great work over many years in our municipality - their members were instrumental in the creating and protecting of Boyd Park Murrumbeena and have advocated strongly for Council to pursue improved biodiversity policies that recognise and enhance indigenous species.
The website is a wealth of information and I particularily enjoyed the historical archival photos. It is also pleasing that this project was made possible via a community grant recently. With an upcoming community forum on biodiversity scheduled for early 2012 the launch of this site is quite timely.
