On a fine and sunny Sunday many of our local landcare groups hosted some very successful National Tree Day events across the upper goulburn catchment.
Yellow Creek-Dairy Creek Landcare Group planted out an area on a farm along the Goulburn River, Kinglake Landcare Group held their event at the Stony Creek Reserve and adjoining significant roadside area and the Cathedral Landcare Group continued the great work of rehabilitating the Andrews Creek.
18 seemed to be the magic number with Kinglake, Yellow Creek-Dairy Creek and Cathedral Landcare Groups all having 18 volunteers each on the day.
Strath Creek Landcare Group had a huge turnout of 60 volunteers including many children and young families at their King Parrot Creek planting site.
The Yea Wetlands Committee of Management also had a great turnout thanks to volunteers from the Yea Scout Group.
Overall almost 1500 plants were planted on the day.
