On Sunday 10th August, the Northern Bendigo Landcare Group collaborated with 1st Eaglehawk Cubs and Scouts for a National Tree Day event, planting 165 trees thanks to the generosity of Viatek Central Victoria.
The indigenous species were planted along a road reserve as part of the Landcare group’s Whirrakee Wattle Biolink: Whipstick to Wellsford project. This project aims to improve connectivity by using the Bendigo Creek Streamside Reserve, old road reserves and private property to link the Whipstick Nature ConservationReserve with the Wellsford Forest – both very important tracts of remnant native forest.
This will not only provide a corridor for biodiversity but will positively impact on river health.
