Join a picnic or have your own

Knitting Nannas will be joining their local picnics around the state to celebrate nature in our local areas and to get to know people from other local groups. The picnics are supported by the NSW Nature Conservation Council.

We are co-hosting the picnic at Callan Point on Waterfront Drive in Rozelle. It’s a beautiful spot in parklands next to Parramatta River. You’re very welcome to bring your picnic and catch up with us on Sunday 16th from 11am to 3pm.

Manly Koala Rally

Koalas have been around for 25 million years – they must have survived a lot of changes in that time!  But they will only survive the changes our society is inflicting on them if we act to protect their habitat. The rally will draw attention to the actions that will work. There’s no time to waste.

Nannas hope to see you at Manly beach next Friday. Facebook event details.

Say no to Glendell coal extension

Nannas will join the rally outside the NSW Parliament on Wednesday 21 September at 1pm to support the Wonnarua people’s fight to protect their heritage from the Glendell coal mine extension. The project would wipe out very significant heritage sites, destroy woodlands and forest and produce millions of tonnes of emissions for up to 22 years.
