Dalmeny residents were out in force despite a very rainy Saturday to show how much they care about protecting 100 Ha of native bush land now facing development.
Concerned residents met with candidates from the Mayne Team, Eurobodalla Labour and Eurobodalla Greens to lend support to Dalmeny Matters campaign to reclaim community land and protect the threatened species that have been identified as depending on the bush corridor.
The group walked through Lot 2, comprising 40 ha. being community owned land that Council have recently exchanged contracts on. It is understood that settlement is yet to take place.
Those attending the walk said the bush was beautiful in the rain. A spokesperson for the Dalmeny Matters group said native Fringe Lilies were in abundance, Narrow Leaf Geebung were covered with fruit and Blueberry Ash were flowering pink and white. The group stopped to observe the marks left by Yellow-bellied Gliders feeding on Spotted Gum sap. It was noted that this species is particularly affected by clearing and habitat destruction.
