Dear Sue and Bruce, Michelle and the friends group
Now it's coming to the end of the year we just wanted to say a big thanks for having us at the reserve and giving us the opportunity to get some experience with the planting days and in the nursery.
We have had an amazing time and have thoroughly enjoyed coming up to the reserve.
Our work at the reserve was a real advantage with our job interviews at Parks Victoria and Parks were really keen to hear about our involvement with the friends group.
Now that we have our Summer Rangers positions we are going to miss coming up to the reserve every week but we're really keen to continue volunteering in the new year.
Big thanks and we look forward to seeing you next year.
Tina, Jayne and Rachael
