@ North East Water property, Barnawartha

  • This event has passed.

Join Trust for Nature and the North East CMA for the official launch of a new project to improve habitat for two of the region’s most endangered birds – the Swift Parrot and the Regent Honeyeater.

‘Bush for Birds’ is a four year project supporting landholders with habitat management and protection activities like fencing, revegetation and weed control.

The project launch will include a community tree planting event.  It’s a great chance to contribute to threatened species conservation in a practical way.

There will also be opportunities for local landholders to chat with Trust for Nature and North East CMA staff about grants that are currently available to assist them with habitat management on their land.

Please bring gardening gloves, a water bottle and a planting tool. Wear suitable clothing like sturdy boots and sun/rain protection. Kids are welcome.

Please RSVP for catering purposes by 5pm Wednesday 12th June to willf@tfn.org.au or 0418 300 959.

This event is supported by Trust for Nature and the North East Catchment Management Authority, through funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

 

Directions:

The event will be held at North East Water’s decommissioned Barnawartha treatment plant, which adjoins Chiltern-Mt Pilot National Park. Head north out of Chiltern on the Chiltern-Howlong Rd for 6 km. Turn right onto Ryans Rd, continue for 1 km and the site entrance is on the left (after Teal Track).
