Wildlife Drawings by Janet Flinn

@ 'Valley Reserve' Mt. Waverley - City of Monash

Valley Reserve is located in Mt Waverley, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It contains remnant and regenerated bushland. Through an initiative of Monash City Council and the 'Friends of Valley Reserve' a series of Interpretive Signs, that will add to visitors knowledge and enjoyment of the area, have been set up along the Walking Trail. Janet Flinn's original Pen and Ink Drawings of the local Flora and Fauna have been fabricated into attractive metal signage, coloured to blend with the environment.
