Kalimna Park Butterfly Count: Sunday 25 Nov
Join ecologists Elaine Bayes and Karl Just on a walk searching for the endangered Eltham Copper Butterfly. Hosted by Friends of Kalimna Park and Connecting Country.
The Eltham Copper Butterfly was once distributed right around Victoria, and now the largest surviving population of this little butterfly lives in Castlemaine – it could very well be called the Castlemaine Copper Butterfly.
Karl and Elaine will lead us on a guided walk through the bushland at Kalimna Park, and show us how to look for the adult butterflies. Friends of Kalimna Park members will explain how to help the habitat of these beautiful insects.
When: Sunday 25 Nov from 12noon – 3pm
Friends of Kalimna Park AGM 12-12:30. All welcome!
Light lunch: 12:30 Butterfly walk and talk: 1pm
Where: Kalimna Point Rotunda, Kalimna Road

Friends of Kalimna Park AGM
The Friends of Kalimna Park will be having their annual general meeting immediately before the butterfly talk.
Thank you to those who responded to our last email with an offer to assist with the committee.
If we can get a couple more people on the committee at the AGM the group may take on a new lease of life, so please don't be afraid to come along and have a chat about it at the AGM.
