Serious Landcare Activity in Kinglake

You know the community’s active when the ‘lolly-pop’ turns up! Kinglake Landcare are serious about rebuilding and rejuvenating their local environment. Public safety is high on the list when planning and conducting on-ground works. We’ve been busy on National Tree Day:

  • 40 volunteers including grade four students from Middle Kinglake Primary School attended the National Schools Tree Day at Number One Creek on Friday 30th July. We planted 300 shrubs and ground covers and finished off with a sausage sizzle and refreshments.
  • An ecologist from Practical Ecology was also on site to talk to the volunteers about the management plan he has completed for the site. 
  • 37 volunteers turned up despite the wet weather on the following Sunday for National Tree Day. We were able to plant over 400 trees and shrubs. A Channel Seven news team, in town to report on the Royal Commission findings, turned up after the event but were still able to film a few of the Kinglake Scouts for the evening news.

Thank you to Pat Ash Civil for donating the marquee- it came in very handy.
