This project will allow Friends of Warrandyte State Park to collect records of flora and fauna found at or near our indigenous nursery at Pound Bend Warrandyte. FOWSP is a volunteer group of 290 families, with a mutual interest in the conservation and rehabilitation of native bushland in the Warrandyte State Park. Formed in 1982, FOWSP is now one of the largest and most active “Friends” groups in the state. The aim of our group is to foster awareness of the natural values of the Park and to assist the Rangers in the care and protection of both the State Park and the Warrandyte-Kinglake Nature Conservation Reserve. Our Group also runs an indigenous plant nursery in the Pound Bend area of the Park. We also provide information on indigenous plants, weeds and various aspects of bushland conservation to our local community.

    I too am really disappointed to hear of Bowerbirds pending demise. It has been great for me as a catalyst for my discoveries and learning. With gratitude and appreciation. Kim

    Anas castanea Antidae I couldn't get anymore info to come up for this on the Bowerbird id so have resorted to manual id on the comments page. I puzzled over the plumage of these ducks and am proposing that they are immature male Chestnut teals. I have seen a pair nesting on the other side of the Yarra in Sweeneys Flats. So hopefully Foxy Loxy is under control there and people keep their puppies on lead at the end of Sweeneys lane.
