Teen HEAL program
Teen HEAL continues this year with thanks to funding from Healthway. The CRC will deliver a wellness program to the Year 7 class at Boyup Brook District High School during Term 2, with refresher classes for the Year 8, 9 and 10 students who completed the program last year.
Students learnt the benefits of healthy eating and physical activity to encourage them to lead a healthy lifestyle into adulthood.
Shhhh.... we are creating a 'Secret Garden'
The front garden of the CRC is starting to attract a few new visitors with some little nut houses and bush furniture appearing amongst the native plants and boots! You may even see a bush fairy or two in the near future.....

The Magic of Mushrooms
Nature and fungi enthusiast, Faye Arcaro presented a slideshow of her fungi findings to a full house at the CRC on July 11 before leading a field walk to the Boyup Brook Billabong to see what magic could be found....... and there was plenty!
There has been so much interest in fungi since the workshop, that the Blackwood Basin Group has provided us with a link to an amazing resource to help you identify the fungi. Bougher, N. L. (2009). Fungi of the Perth Region and Beyond: A self-managed field book. Western Australian Naturalists’ Club (Inc.), Perth, Western Australia. This book appears as a PDF on the WA Naturalist Club website and can be reviewed as the whole book, or as sections.
Also another good reference for Fungi is the FungiMap which has an interesting article about edible fungi.
