Construction of the propagation unit is complete and propagation activities have commenced at the new site.
We are planning to add Tuesday morning sessions as a regular activity. We have had numerous working bees to get to this stage and again we would like to thank all the volunteers who have made this task look easy. Many thanks also to John and Barbara Wade for providing a home for the unit for a year.
In early February ANGAIR was the focus and host for a celebratory afternoon tea when the State Environment Minister, the Hon. Lily D’Ambrosio, announced that management of 6500 ha of Alcoa leasehold land has been transferred back to the state government.
The high value vegetation on this land is to be included in the Great Otway National Park. Legislation to this effect will need to be officially passed by parliament, hopefully in May this year. I doubt this addition would have happened had it not been for the foresight of ANGAIR Committee members who promoted the values of the Heath to key major party candidates prior to the last state election. This resulted in an election promise by the then opposition Labor Party to place the Alcoa leasehold land (when released by Alcoa) into the Great Otway National Park if elected. Thanks are also due to Alcoa for their early release of the leasehold land and their support over many years.
