La Trobe University – Wildlife Sanctuary & Surrounds, Melbourne Campus, Bundoora
We are very fortunate in being able to visit the La Trobe Wildlife Sanctuary which is renowned for its facilities and provides an indigenous natural environment for conservation, education and research activities that support the learning and teaching objectives of La Trobe University. The La Trobe Sanctuary also operates an indigenous plant nursery, providing floristic diversity and nesting boxes to the local community and ensuring biodiversity of the reserves managed by La Trobe University.
The tour of the wildlife sanctuary runs for 1.5 hours and covers topics such as the history of the site, plans for the future and general information on the habitat, flora and fauna of the sanctuary. We will explore some of the plantings, which in many areas are now well established since the founding of the University in 1967, and we are also planning to visit their plant nursery.
We will be exploring the campus plantings after lunch.
Attendees will receive information on parking etc a few days before the event.
BYO morning refreshments and lunch. At 10.00 am we will gather for morning drinks before starting of the tour at 10.30am.
