Meet The Fochers

Understanding about living with wildlife as your neighbours can be challenging as those who attended the MEET THE FOCHERS event on Saturday 13th October found out. Blue Tongue lizards, Echidnas, Snakes, Frogs, Wallabies and a myriad of tiny insects all call Cornish Hill home, and the FOCHERS were keen to find out how they could be sure they were on the right track as they continue to restore habitat along the creek corridor. With Wild Life consultant Ian Temby, Lindall Kidd from Birdlife Australia, Janene Trickey from DELWP all on board, those who attended were well rewarded with some great advice about striking a balance. And to top it off, with wasp season just around the corner, Friends member Jan shared the secrets of making wasp traps and Gayle Osborne ably explained the VEAC process which has been a keen and sometimes vexing topic of conversation in the community.
