Damien McClellan from EcoTreasures, is a big supporter of our native environment. EcoTreasures is a Sydney based company, who specializes in tours that showcase Sydney’s beaches and mountains. Damien recently purchased 24 trees for a regional park in Central Victoria. When we add up Damien’s trees from the past 7 years, they add up to almost 600 trees. An Ecotreasures Forest.

 

These 24 trees have been planted on the behalf of Google who enjoyed a snorkel tour with Ecotreasures in November 2019. The small team planned a tailored team building day at the Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve, Shelly Beach Manly.

Damien’s latest trees were planted on the outskirts of the very successful ongoing revegetation project in the new Woowookarung State Forest Victoria. Formally called Canadian Regional Park, the new name acknowledges the deep engagement of the Wadawurrung People with the park and local area. Woowookarung means ‘Place of Plenty’ which highlights its importance to Wadawurrung for food, shelter, medicine and culture. The 641 ha park will see on-going re-vegetation works over the many years to come.

 

Thank you to the Friends of Woowookarung for all your work at this park. And thank you to Damien for your ongoing support for so many years.
