You are invited to our AGM on Wednesday 24th July at 8:00pm at the Glenaeon School Hall, 121 Edinburgh Road, Castlecrag, opposite The Parapet.
The business will be the presentation of the President’s Report and the Treasurer’s Report, and the election of office bearers.
Then we will have a presentation by an ex Castlecrag resident Jacob Sife who is Natural Areas Program Leader at Ku-ring-gai Council and host of EnviroTube. Jacob will be talking about ‘Collaborating for Conservation’. His particular area of interest is the powerful owl and the preservation of the newly discovered and endangered Hibbertia spanantha.
Ku-ring-gai is known as a biodiversity hotspot and a refuge for many species of flora and fauna struggling to survive in the highly urbanised Sydney basin. Ku-ring-gai Council manages numerous native and threatened species, populations and ecological communities in an effort to protect, conserve and enhance our biodiversity. Critical to the success of conservation programs are the collaborations formed with community and Government bodies. In this talk, Jacob will look at the conservation programs in Ku-ring-gai, particularly those which have received funding through the State Government’s Saving our Species or Ku-ring-gai Council’s Environment Levy; he will share data on outcomes and the most up to date monitoring on some of our most endangered species, including the critically endangered Hibbertia spanantha.
Please come along and enjoy the evening. Supper will be served.
