BCS printed the poignant 'BEAU-MARIS OR BARE-MARIS?' leaflet below once it began, in 1953.  Sixty-five years later, the message is more important than ever.

Beaumaris and Black Rock are unusual in that a Vegetation Protection Overlay (VPO3), long fought for by BCS, was implemented almost 20 years ago by Bayside City Council to preserve our indigenous and native vegetation. But sadly, it's been too often ignored, misunderstood or objected to at Council and VCAT. By 2023, Bayside could have lost half its trees, with Black Rock, and especially Beaumaris, copping the brunt.

We live in one of the most environmentally diverse and treed suburbs in Melbourne, yet we're constantly losing large, established trees unnecessarily, and thus losing habitat for our birds and animals. But contrary to some people's beliefs, a tree-filled garden can dramatically increase the value of your home. You CAN build a beautiful new home without removing trees. A well-greened and cooler suburb leaves us healthier, happier and more contented residents.

Join us at Beaumaris Secondary College, Thursday 11 October 2018 from 6:30 pm, where our wonderful MC, SEAN DOOLEY, will entertain us, and introduce our panel of diverse speakers. 

Light refreshments will be available. And we will wrap up around 9:30 pm.
