Visit to Ewart Brothers Reserve

The November quarterly gathering for Wodonga Urban Landcare Network was a chance for members and groups to catch up and included a visit to the Friends of Ewart Brothers Reserve patch.

Landcare members enjoyed a wander from the community garden and along House Creek.

Paul Schupina, coordinator of the Friends group, gave an introduction to the reserve, the history of the group and activities to date. Paul also outlined the plans they have for the future.
It was a wonderful chance to ask questions and gain some new perspectives.
Many attendees noted they had not visited this reserve before.

Thanks to Paul and the Friends of Ewart Brothers Reserve for hosting our visit and showing us around!
