Minnippi park update

Today I am happy to report some good news in the Minnippi park saga! The head of the 2 million tree project along with other council representatives have met with us and gone through the rational behind the habitat clearing as well as the proposal for the area.Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend the meeting personally, but those that did have reported back and are feeling much happier about the situation.
There will now be a mixture of around 12 different species of trees used in a less dense planting as well as the re-sowing of several grass species in the area.
While the best solution would be the one that was never needed (ie: No habitat destruction to begin with!) we all feel that this is the next best outcome and look forward to the time when the insect population returns to the area. No doubt it will take a few years but at least there is a definite light at the end of the tunnel now!
To all those that have offered support and their thoughts, we are sincerely grateful!
