Ada speaks up for Friends of Kinaba

On Monday 19th October, Ada spoke to NICA members about the progress of the Friends of Kinaba project, and their continuing enthusiasm to have the Centre re-opened as an Information and Visitor Centre. She spoke eloquently and accompanied her talk with a slide show of the project and the surrounds.

A quick change

A small group of volunteers have changed this room into a bright space for displays in one morning at Kinaba.

The latest working bee was held on Thursday 16th October.  6 busy workers....painting, repairing and flashing....(that's roof flashing ). Mike Breid mentioned us on Community radio - thanks Mike.

Great working bee 24th July

More cleaning, scrubbing and painting at Kinaba, and every working bee makes such a difference to the feel and look of the building.  It's wonderful to see the building being looked after.  

The volunteers have so far replaced all timber joists, facias, posts and railings that were needed, and with more elbow grease, the building is looking more clean and tidy and spruced up at each visit.  Well done!!!

sorry, June picnic cancelled

I'm really sorry, but all the boats that are normally available to take people up to Kinaba have taken their owners sailing or on holidays.  And that means that the only way to get to Kinaba is to walk from Elanda Point opposite the canoe launch area, or paddle.  We are cancelling the picnic for this month, and the next one will be Sunday 31st August.

I apologize for the short notice, and if you would like to take yourselves there anyway for a picnic, you are most welcome.

Regards
Rikki for Interim Committee

June Kinaba picnic

June picnic invitation

Our next b.y.o breakfast picnic at the Kinaba Information Centre is on Sunday 29th June 2014 from 9am.

Swim, paddle, row, sail, motor or hitch a ride with a local and come and join us and visit the Gateway to the Everglades.  So close and so delightful. As the Centre is in the National Park, no domestic animals thank you.

Working Bee 7th May

The latest working bee at Kinaba saw our volunteers Ken, Telena, David, Laurie, Mike, Jan, Bob, Lesley and Ian, Sue and Charlie painting, oiling, de-scaling or replacing corroded structural nuts, bolts, plates, and repaired water leaks and window and door screens.  

National Parks were able to support us by supplying sandpaper and brushes.  Another busy and productive morning at Kinaba.
