Help improve habitat for frogs, insects and other wildlife at Tulip St Reserve next to the Sandringham Family Leisure Centre.

Bayside is blessed with green space but has few wetlands. The pond at the Reserve is one place where frogs can be found. Friends of Native Wildlife have been monitoring frogs in the pond for the Melbourne Water Frog Census for over 20 years. We are regularly finding three different species of frogs and many invertebrates in the pond. The pond is ephemeral - it dries up from time to time.

Join us to dig in a variety of plants to improve habitat for the frogs and insects.

Where: Corner Tulip St and Reserve Rd Cheltenham, south of the BMX corner
Parking in Tulip St or Park Rd

Please bring: sturdy shoes, working gloves and warm clothes, water. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CUP OR MUG.

Common Bronzewings are beautiful native pigeons that are under pressure in our area. You can help our local Bronzewings by improving their habitat in one of the places in Bayside they are most commonly seen.

Citywide and the Bayside Community Nursery support us, but we need your hands-on help to plant food for these uncommon birds.

Enter from George St near Wangara Rd. Look for the wire fence double gate on the west side of the former golf driving range.
