Twisted Lakes Snowpole Project
It’s UP, UP and AWAY with the Twisted Lakes Snowpole Project!
During this week’s working bee, Wildcare Cradle Mountain Volunteers are installing new snowpoles on the Twisted Lakes Track. This project is made possible by a Wildcare Board of Management Internal Grant (to purchase the snowpoles).
With increased visitor numbers, particularly during fagus time, the snowpoles will keep people safe and on-track in the high altitude fragile alpine area of the Cradle Mountain National Park. Volunteers are working in partnership with the Parks and Wildlife Service who do a fantastic job looking after this area.
Board of Management grants are available to individual Wildcare Branches and are funded by membership subscriptions.
A diverse range of projects have recently received BOM grants and include:
- Friends of the Giant Fresh-water Lobster (Interpretative panels)-see below for 1 panel if good enough quality pic.
- Get Outside with Community (Programme evaluation and Strategic Planning)
- Friends of Bass Strait Islands (Boxthorn Control- Roydon Island)
- Friends of Freycinet (tools and platform construction)
- Bruny Island Quarantine Station (interpretation panel and protection canopy for heritage German chimney)
- Friends of Mt Field (Windy Moor Boardwalk)
