Welcome to the inaugural edition of the SOWN E-news. We have recently updated our website and are delighted to be able to keep our members and friends up to date by our regular electronic bulletins.

This edition should have plenty to keep you interested during these hot summer days when it’s too warm to be down the creek pulling out weeds or pondering the beauty of nature.

In this edition we are featuring an article on Butterflies of the Enoggera Creek catchment by Frank Jordan, co-author of ‘Create More Butterflies’. This article couldn’t have come at a better time as the summer air is presently filled with butterflies of all shapes and sizes after the recent rains.

We have also included a report from our recent AGM so if you could not make it on the day you can learn of SOWN’s achievements in 2005 and find out where we plan to go in 2006.

Lastly, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to catching up with you down the creek in 2006.
