Fifty trees were planted at Moonambel Primary School in the Western District of Victoria by the Buloke and Northern Grampians Landcare Network (BNGL), thanks to the Proact team. The trees were a mix of local species including Red gum, Grey, Yellow and Red Box, Yellow Gum, Buloke and a variety of Wattle.
At the Moonambel Primary School, students are very keen on their environmental studies and the Landcare Network was asked to help put in new trees of local species into the adjacent school reserve. This is where Proact came to assist, by purchasing 50 of these trees. The school is hoping to lure woodland birds into their Reserve which will assist with the environmental studies.
The area is home to several small marsupials including Sugar Gliders, Yellow-footed Antechinus as well as echidna, kangaroo and wallaby. Bird surveys in the area have shown that there are abundant species of honeyeater, parrot (Red Rumped and Musk parrots, Crimson and Eastern Rosellas) and smaller woodland birds (including Red, and Yellow Robins, and Diamond Firetails (endangered).
Thank you to the sponsors of the trees planted in Moonambel. You are helping our small bush community to provide homes for more wildlife, blossoms for pollinators and to make our town more beautiful!
