Raising awareness about the value and use of native grasslands, seasonal wetlands, grassy woodlands & other ecosystems on the Victorian Volcanic Plains

Enjoy the splash of colour while it lasts

Several large patches of common everlasting created a splash of colour on a roadside near Cape Clear/Springdallah this week. They are on a roadside that gets regularly burnt thanks to the work of the local fire brigade. I hope common everlasting remains common, but while some of us think there have been a lot of opportunities for people to learn about the value of native grasslands in recent years there still appears to be reports of damage to grasslands, especially on roadsides. Really it should only be Council authorised contractors who carry out weed control and firebreak preparation on roadsides then we will be able to have lots of wildflowers to enjoy into the future.
