Getting on with conservation

10 July 2020


We hope you and your family and friends are safe and doing the best you can under the current situation where the Melbourne metropolitan area and the Shire of Mitchell have had changes to restrictions. 

As we have all been advised, these restrictions mean that for people living in metropolitan Melbourne and the Shire of Mitchell, there are four reason to leave home: shopping; care giving; for compassionate reasons or seeking medical treatment; exercising.  There are also directions about work and working from home.  

I’d like to provide you with an update about our reserves, our stewardship program and events. 

Our reserves remain open for individual recreation, provided all visitors adhere to public health measures. 

Trust for Nature staff living in metropolitan Melbourne and the Shire of Mitchell will continue their conservation work within the directions and we will continue to support landholders who have conservation covenants in these areas as best we can. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call our office on 8631 5888. 

We would usually run events during spring where we hold open days across the state. Due to the current circumstances, we will postpone them to later in 2020 or reschedule in 2021. Stay tuned to our newsletter (subscribe) or follow us on Facebook and Twitter.  

For more information about coronavirus (COVID-19) visit the Department Health and Human Services’ website or call 1800 675 398.

It has been a year full of challenges so far and I am sure that we all look forward to activities returning to normal as soon as they can.  

Yours sincerely 
Victoria Marles
CEO Trust for Nature
