On a recent Sunday members of PALM interviewed Alison Pouliot and Tim Fletcher for our upcoming film on the Moorabool River. Alison is a freshwater ecologist and environmental photographer; Tim is a Professor of Urban Ecohydrology at the University of Melbourne. Both have research experience with the Moorabool River, and Tim also has been involved in the design and monitoring of several large-scale pilot green infrastructure projects in both Australia and France. We met at the Mollongghip Hall for a picnic lunch under a shady tree and an fascinating in-depth chat about water issues and the Moorabool River. Then we drove into the nearby Wombat Forest to film the interviews. Many thanks to Tim and Alison for making the day a great success by giving up their valuable time and contributing their views and experience to the film.
Production of the film is progressing well and we will soon travel again through the Moorabool catchment to do more filming of important sites. The film is being made by She Oaks Films, who produced the earlier film on the Moorabool, "Lost Waters", released in 2008. We will notify supporters when the film is to be released.
