Pittwater Natural Heritage Association (PNHA) added 4 new photos.

The Asparagus Weed Monster (see Asparagus berries in our new cover photo) was at the PNHA stall yesterday in the Sustainability Lane at the Pittwater Wine and Food Fair. The Monster made several appearances alerting unwary people to the horrors of Asparagus Fern and the spreading the good news that those water tubers won't grow if the crown is cut out. A wallboard saw is a great tool to help with this.Now is the time to cut off the berries. Our weed display and mounted local birds and a Swamp Wallaby were attractions at our stall.

New Laws to protect our Environment? We presented a petition of over 10 000 signatures to Rob Stokes' office yesterday after the Stand Up For Nature protest, attended by about 40 people from many NGOs. Weakened offset provisions actually exempt developers from protecting bushland. This could expose urban bushland to destruction and permit developer profit. Watch out for the draft legislation coming soon. ... See MoreSee Less

Northern Beaches protest: Our Trees, Our Future!

Apr 12, 11:00am

Office of The Hon. Rob Stokes, MP for Pittwater, 1725 Pittwater Rd, Monavale

Under pressure from developers, agribusiness and the Nationals, the NSW Government is rewriting our nature and tree-clearing laws and the news isn't good for our wildlife, farmlands and climate. The new laws are being written right now and will apply to both urban and country areas of NSW. These laws are not about protecting nature, they are simply about faciliating development at the cost of our environment and wellbeing. Come and join us and make your voice heard at this important event in front of Pittwater MP Rob Stokes, who is the NSW Minister for Planning and one of the key decision-makers when it comes to the government's review of our nature and tree-clearing laws. More information about the campaign: www.standupfornature.org.au
