A beaut evening in Cobboboonee National Park

A beaut evening in Cobboboonee National Park

Last night Cath and I had the pleasure of heading down to the Surry Ridge Picnic Area in Cobboboonee NP to catch up with the Portland Field Naturalists at their first meeting for 2012.

As well as having a nice social chat with everyone, if gave us the chance to introduce Nature Glenelg Trust and talk about the types of projects we are hoping to undertake in Victoria’s South West in the near future.

While we were sitting there, we actually got a great look at a koala that had decided to move between trees.

The combined Cobboboonee and Lower Glenelg National Parks are one of the largest areas of remnant forest, heath and wetland that occur in Nature Glenelg Trust’s focal region – so it is a great place to get a feel for just how special our natural environment is in this region.  Just in case you haven’t been to Cobboboonee, I’ve attached an image below to give you a feel for what this forest is like. I know I’m biased, but it’s great isn’t it?
