The May 2019 issue of Streamlines is now available on the website. In this issue we continue the series of articles by local residents describing their work in revegetating their properties. This month the contributors are Alan and Sue Anderson from Pullenvale.
Since many of our members have difficulties in removing lantana from their properties, our Editor Helen Ogle has included some information from a government report on two biocontrol agents that are showing signs of success.
Two trees suitable for larger blocks in our area are described, and we finish with notes of the serious disease afflicting our local water dragons as mentioned on this site previously.
This issue of Streamlines starts with reports on our recent activites . There is an article compiled by our Editor, Helen Ogle refreshing our knowledge on the catchments within which we operate and the objectives we work towards.
