News from THECA




More than 50 photos over 20 different photographers were submitted, and our fabulous team has worked their magic to produce this stunning calendar, which celebrates the wildlife of our western suburbs, showcases the work of talented local photographers, and supports the work of three local environmental groups:

The Hut Environmental & Community Association Inc (THECA)

Moggill Creek Catchment Group Inc (MCCG)

Rural Environment Planning Association Inc (REPA) 

Our first annual calendar was produced in 2000, and each year sees copies dispatched around the world.

We thank all our contributing photographers, who have allowed us to use their images, our designer Carolyn Nowicki and our calendar co-ordinator Andrew Taylor, all of whom have given their time and skills free of charge. We also thank Tim McGuire of All My Print ( for doing such a beautiful printing job.
