The Black Saturday bushfires of Satruday 7 February 2009 impacted our local area, in particular the City of Whittlesea and Shire of Nillumbik. In the aftermath, a local photographer took some photographs which were donated to Yarra Plenty Regional Library last year. They have since been added to our YPRL Local History Flickr account. Poems from the Strathewen bushfire were posted to blackened trees during these days.
