February's Eagle Award winner

Wodonga Council was pleased to announce Brian Trebilcock as February's Eagle Award winner.

The award recognises people in our city who, through their volunteer work, are making a difference to the community.

Mr Trebilcock has made a large contribution to our city, donating around 300 hours of labor each year to maintain David Winterbottom Reserve.

Some of the tasks he has worked on include:

  • Conducting revegetation
  • Weed management
  • Planting of advanced trees along the pathways
  • Removal of woody weeds from House Creek
  • Co-ordinating other volunteers
  • Liaising with council to improve the reserve
  • Installing public art and signage
  • Maintenance of timber furniture

Mr Trebilcock has also helped secure grants to build assets in David Winterbottom Park, including a shelter shed with seating and a nature walking trail along the creekside.

He is a wonderful role model and his knowledge of the local reserve and hands-on skills are most valuable to the community.
