The following information is provided by the National Parks Association regarding changes to logging laws which if passed will create a major impact on forests in our area.


NSW Forestry operations operate under 20 year long Regional Forest Agreements. The original intention of this was to achieve a balance between logging and conservation. The last agreement failed to protect our forests with dreadful breaches of regulations such as those shown in our nearby Lorne State Forest on the 7.30 Report. These agreements are now due for renewal and the government has proposed...

The overgrown and derelict oyster posts on OL86/140 were removed by the leaseholder earlier this year. 

At low tide, it is obvious that some posts were missed. From the shore five posts are visible on the southern half of the lease and four on the northern half of the lease. These posts are not visible at high tide and are a navigation risk for the unwary.

We have informed the Fisheries staff at DPI and they said that they would notify the leaseholder. With the summer holidays approaching, please make sure that your visitors are aware of the problem.

We have a pair of nesting herons. Last January a hail storm came through and destroyed the eggs in the nest.It took the birds a few days to work out that there was a problem.

Our herons have built another nest high up in in the same gum tree. Unfortunately the chick and nest came down in the high winds during the week. One of the herons has been sitting up in the tree looking very mournful. There is still sufficient time to try again this summer, so we will be watching to see what happens next.

North Arm Cove residents and locals from Tea Gardens and surrounds had their questions answered about compost and worm farms at Scraps to Soil gathering facilitated by Kirsten Banks from Mid Coast Council on the 17 Nov. The aim of the workshops is to reduce the land fill of which kitchen scraps account for approximately 30% in the red bins of the Mid Coast area. Note that we are not supposed to put scraps into the green bin as there is not yet a composting facility, however there is one in the planning stages.

A few things about worms...

As we continue to campaign for improved telecommunications in the Cove it is worth remembering that this local struggle began many years ago. But before relating a bit of that history here is a quick question:

How many permanent residents do you think would have lived in our North Arm Cove village back in 1968?

10? 20? 50? 100? more?
