Geoff Lea from Walking Track Services Tasmania, not only has many years experience walking Australian tracks in National Parks, he has also had a hand in constructing many kilometers of the tracks themselves. This year, Geoff asked me to plant 60 trees on his behalf. The trees went to Matt Pitt (acting CEO of Landcare Tasmania) and his team at Conservation Volunteers.

Tree planting at Tyenna River.

Matt explains the project …

‘This project was about re-vegetating areas along the Tyenna River. This riparian rehabilitation of previously grazed lands adjoining the National Park aims to increase biodiversity.  Conservation Volunteers had various people engaged throughout this project including; local job seekers, retirees and university students as well as international volunteers. Everyone involved was thrilled to be helping revegetate and protect such a spectacular and diverse National Park’.  

Thank you Geoff for your ongoing support of tree planting in Tasmania. I’m sure you know the Tyenna River district well and have walked many of its tracks. Please keep an eye out for your trees.
