Biodiversity Month - September 1st - 30th
Biodiversity Month is held in September each year.
During this month, Knox City Council is holding a series of events to promote the importance of protecting, conserving and improving biodiversity. Knox is proud of our green open spaces and bushland reserves. We want to preserve our natural environments and habitats for future generations of Australians. And we can start right in our own backyard!
Biodiversity Month offers many ways to get involved and opportunities to learn more about our natural world. We encourage you to take time out in your favourite green space.
Visit Knox City Council's website to see all the events happening this month!
Biodiversity Blitz 2022
It's Biodiversity Month! And that means that it's time for a Biodiversity Blitz!
Last year, Knox recorded 3,015 species, can we beat that score this year???
The Knox Environment Society acknowledges the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and the Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation, the Traditional Custodians of land on which we meet. We pay our respect to their Elders past and present.
