Recognition for community nest boxes
Signs have been erected on a popular walking trail around Lake Guyatt and Lake Guthridge in Sale recognising the conservation efforts of Sale Field & Game.
Wellington Shire Council has worked with Sale Field & Game to erect waterbird nest boxes in wetlands that are more accessible to the urban community.
The impressive signs point to the great conservation history of Field & Game Australia and particularly Herb Guyatt, a local hunter and conservationist who was instrumental in the formation of the organisation.
Mr Guyatt’s work in the region was formally recognised in 1994 when Lake Guyatt was named in his memory.
The Council recognises Sale Field & Game as a leader in the restoration of local wetlands and as a strong supporter of conservation projects enhancing biodiversity.
Bairnsdale Field & Game is also involved in a community nest box project that highlights the conservation work of branches, and the importance of wetland ecosystems to a broader audience.
