TFNC & National Tree Day, 1 August 2010

TFNC Inc showed the flag at the National Tree Day celebrations at Peacehaven Botanical Park in Highfields. Although the day started off cloudy and cold it brightened up considerably over the morning.

We shared a tent with the Wildlife Preservation Society. Members will remember Trish Leehong coming to speak to us last year and bringing her little puggle, P4. Well you'll all be pleased to know that P4 is doing very well. She was released back into the bush but unfortunately was found again having being knocked by a vehicle. Her injuries were slight and now is kept by Trish for these educational events. P4 and the half a dozen wallaby joeys in their artificial pouches were the star attractions.

A big thank you to all that helped on the day. In order of appearance, John, Peter & Alison E, Tricia, Flora, Alison S, Linda & Francis, Cheryl, Phil & Jess. We all had an enjoyable time, and as often happens, caught up with friends we hadn't seen for a while.
