Fabulous turn out for last Sunday's revegetation project

A hug thank you to Shane Hunter from the Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group who organised a brilliant morning down along the Thompson Track in Roleystone. Roleybushcare volunteers were joined by the Shah Satnum Ji Group who volunteer at environmental events. Hundreds of seedlings were planted along the Canning River and then we were treated to a delicious morning tea supplied by Kathy Blaney-Murphy and the Shah Satnum Ji Group. This is such a special place to be and we are looking forward to planting more here next year.

Dr Ian Colquhoun

In the early hours of the morning of Thursday 1st October 2015, the jarrah trees in and around Roleystone were drooping a little because they had just lost their greatest champion.

And as the news filtered through our volunteer group, one by one we hung our heads in sorrow at the passing of our dear friend and inspirational mentor, Dr Ian Colquhoun.

Ian was a research scientist and globally acknowledged authority on Phytophthora dieback. Ian loved the jarrah forest and he devoted much of his time to finding practical ways to protect and preserve it.

He was the founder and sole Chair of our volunteer group and his passing has shocked and saddened us all.

Rest in Peace Ian – you will be forever missed by all of us at Roleybushcare.
