Open Day at the Arboretum
October 4 2008

Around 50 of our supporters joined board and subcommittee members for an afternoon at the arboretum.

New information signs around the arboretum were introduced by guest speaker Neville Bonney, renowned author and expert on native plants and biodiversity plantings.

Life Governors Mary Hope and Malcolm Brumby unveiled the signs.

Manager John Kane introduced the board members. Visitors enjoyed a BBQ and guided walks in full sunshine.

The signs were made possible by a Parks Victoria Community Awareness Grant, which also funded a new booklet, Remnant Grasslands of the Peter Francis Points Arboretum, Coleraine. Information for both projects was prepared by Jenny Kane and the arboretum subcommittee.
