During the 1940's Doreen Eddison collected, pressed and painted wildflowers from the local grasslands near her home in Altona. The most remarkable thing about this is that Doreen was 8 years old when she started and only 18 when she stopped collecting. She pressed and painted the flowers in a sketch book which she kept safe for many years.
Along our regional and urban railways there aremany biosites. Due to their proximity to the rail lines, entering and managing these sites requires approval for the relevant rail operators. NatureWest has permission to work on some of these sites. This work is supported through a grant from VicTrack.
NatureWest was able to support Wyndham City Council's Glen Orden Wetlands project by providing fencing and educational signage. Funding was received through the Community Water fund (&48,000) in 2009.
