Planting to conserve Monaro birdlife

About 40 volunteers planted 1000 trees and shrubs at Bush Heritage Australia’s Scottsdale Reserve, north of Bredbo, on Sunday June 1, in the next stage of a six-year 300-hectare ‘Whole of Paddock Rehabilitation’project with Greening Australia.

The volunteers braved inclement weather to plant 20-hectare with yellow box and apple box eucalypts, drooping sheoaks for birds, a range
of acacias and other mid-storey shrubs.

The work will add to 100 hectares already restored in a bid to promote connectivity and enable birds and other animals to move around the landscape.

Please take a look at the recent article in the Monaro Post.
