In recent years Rotary has added a seventh arm of service to its portfolio. This being towards Environment and Sustainability.
In order to acknowledge and support this, Rotary club of Bentleigh Moorabbin Central has taken on organisational membership with
Friends of Karkarook.
Karkarook Park is a recreational and environmental oasis, revegetated with indigenous plants. It is a wetland reserve that has been built around
the Karkarook lake and is home to a large native bird population. The park boasts walking trails, picnic areas, playgrounds and fishing in the lake.
The park is located on the corner of South and Warrigal Roads, Heatherton, however car entry is via Fairchild St.
Our Rotary membership offers the opportunity to interact with a committed group of volunteers, participating in indigenous seed collection,
propagation, planting and general park maintenance. Regular working bees are conducted on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month 9am-11am.
Both Grant Perry and I have been warmly welcomed within this group when attending the Saturday morning working bees.
I would encourage other club members to consider joining in this worthwhile club service project.
Please join with Rotary as we support Friends of Karkarook Park in their organisational participation of National Tree Planting Day, which is
SUNDAY, 31ST JULY – 10AM onwards  - please see the included flyer for details, meet at the nursery area of the park.
