Imagine sitting on the Skullbone throne looking out over the sprawling plains, with majestic cider gums guarding the intricate marshes and wetlands, delicate cushion plants and moss beds. What an incredible moment to enjoy a Loo With a View, knowing that you helped keep this special place wild.
The Tasmanian Land Conservancy are trying something different to our usual fundraising appeals that help us secure special places on private land. This time the TLC is raising funds to construct a Loo with View at our Skullbone Plains Reserve. As we try to make our reserves more accessible to visitors, we need to start installing infrastructure to ensure that the environment we seek to protect is not negatively impacted by our presence.
So, while its not romantic, it is necessary to install toilet facilities and protect the surrounding environment.
This presented us with the great opportunity to dabble in some crowd fundraising (and toilet humour), which is such a powerful and fun way to engage the community, plus raise the necessary funds to build the composting toilet we are hoping for. And when the fantastic Tasmanian artist, Josh Pringle, lent his support by providing his quirky and creative designs, we were over the moon.
So here it is. Our Loo with a View campaign which we would love you to check out. Tell us what you think or, better still, make a pledge! We are nearly half-way there already, so a big thank you to those who have chipped in already.
