Tune in and learn about the powerful owl in and around Yarra.
Urban Ecologist and PhD Candidate, Nick Bradsworth (Deakin University), and Senior Biodiversity Officer, Craig Lupton (City of Yarra) shared their experience of the secret lives of Powerful Owls (Ninox strenua) in Melbourne. They explored our human power to affect the long-term home for Powerful Owls, even in our own backyards, where every bit of indigenous habitat matters.

The Merri and Edgars Creek Confluence Area Restoration Group’s Murnong Gathering on 11 November 2017 was bigger than the event in 2016, which we thought was pretty big then! With easily 200 people attending, perhaps they’re building up to an even bigger tenth event in 2018. Once again the day included, a warm Wurundjeri Welcome to Country from Aunty Di Kerr, fabulous dancing from the Djirri Djirri dancers (joined once again by many in the audience – as in the photo), fun weaving, and of course the harvest and cook-up of the endangered Murnong, along with other bush tucker. However, this time there was even a mobile compost toilet on site! Thanks to Moreland Council for funding and to MCMC for providing marquees, equipment and assistance for the BBQ.
