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
Melway: 86 D1
Please bring: sturdy shoes, working gloves and warm clothes, water. PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN CUP OR MUG.

Out of the Woodwork



Rob was overwhelmed by the support when a call went out on our member newsletter.

There was an immediate response to help make a large number of bird boxes to support an order from a group wishing to enhance habitat in people’s gardens. We had more offers of time and talent than boxes pre-cut ready to assemble and paint.

Bat Detector Bulk Purchase

For those who want to find microbats themselves.

At our last microbat event at Long Hollow, several people expressed interest in owning their own Baton Bat Detector. FoNW are about to purchase some more. Purchasing multiple detectors means we qualify for a discount. If you've wanted to own your own detector that you can use anywhere, anytime, now's your opportunity to get one at a discount by piggybacking on our order.

Register your interest by 13 December.
