The Upper Goulburn Landcare Networks revegetation ‘Lorax Project’ has finished for another year after a very successful year of tree planting throughout the Murrindindi Shire.
This year 229 volunteers from NAB, ANZ, JBWere, St Michael’s Grammar, Yea High School with the assistance of members of the Kinglake, Flowerdale and Strath Creek Landcare Groups we planted a total of 7710 indigenous plants.
Funding was provided by the State Governments Communities For Nature grant and we also had welcome support again from Fifteen Trees who were able to provide funds to purchase some plants for our project.
We re-vegetated over 30 hectares of farmland and waterways on 21 properties at Taggerty, Strath Creek, Buxton, Flowerdale, Kinglake, Glenburn, Limestone, Yea and Murrindindi.
Subject to funding we are hopeful the Lorax Project will continue in 2017.
Anyone interested in volunteering with our project in 2017 or landowners interested in getting assistance with revegetation on their properties contact Chris Cobern on 0413 855 490.
