A very enthusiastic group of ANGAIR members enjoyed the varied plant and animal life that is so accessible in this beautiful wetland reserve at Aireys Inlet.
They are small, difficult to find and perhaps could be called insignificant, but the Midge Orchids, Corunastylis sp., that are now appearing in the Anglesea District are an indicator that all is going well in our orchid world.
When we think of life on Earth we tend to think of the plant and animal kingdoms, but there are also other kingdoms such as bacteria and fungi.

Mirror Bush & Kohuha - Imports from NZ
NZ Mirror Bush Coprosma repens and Kohuhu Pittosporum tenuifolium are imports from New Zealand. Both are evergreen trees with glossy leaves that tend to grow in dense clumps eliminating indigenous species. Birds disperse the Mirror Bush berries and Kohuhu seeds into bushland reserves.
More details about how to control this weed can be found in the archive of Weeds of the Month.
There are a number of wonderful local Friends Groups that provide ANGAIR members and the community with opportunities for involvement.
