The Friends of Reid Street Reserve - Launch of 'The Importance of Small Reserves' Interpretation signs

To be unveiled by Councillor Jan Bonde, Mayor of Central Coast Council

2pm Unveiling, followed by a short walk to view the signs (until 3pm)

We will be out in the open. Please wear comfortable walking shoes (Note: there are no toilets in the Reserve)

One of the aims of the Friends of the Reserve is to increase awareness of the natural values of the Reserve and we were pleased to receive funding from Central Coast Council's 2015/16 Community Small Grants' Scheme to produce three interpretive signs.  These have recently been installed in the Reserve and are the focus of the event on 9th September.  The sign at the entrance is entitled 'The Importance of Small Reserves' and will be unveiled by the Mayor of Central Coast; it highlights some of the plants, animals and fungi that inhabit the Reserve.  A short guided walk will follow the unveiling to view the other two signs: 'Tasmania's Special Birds', which features the endemic birds of Tasmania that can be found in the Reserve, and 'A Haven for Migratory Birds' which provides information about the migratory birds that use the Reserve.  Well-known Tasmanian natural historian and ornithologist, Sarah Lloyd, was the designer of the signs and provided the photographs.
