What is Landcare Fire Recovery?

Upper Goulburn Landcare Network
Since the devastating Black Saturday bushfires of Feb 2009, the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network has been working with landholders and local communities in the Murrindindi and Mitchell Shires to rebuild and rehabilitate the local environment on private property.
This blog presents some of the stories.

Three Sisters, Strath Creek.





6th August 2010
25 ANZ/GE volunteers plus Chris , Cath , David and Janet met at Terry Hubbards property in Strath Creek to do some serious tree planting . The paddocks were beautifully soggy and the hills impressively steep. We travelled to the planting site via 4WD tractor . The weather was not that kind so Terry's shearing shed made a welcome retreat for our BBQ lunch . The team was very efficient -1800 trees were planted.



Highlights of the day : Chris's ability to drive any machine . Tractors & Four Wheel Motorbikes. The left-overs from the Strath Creek ladies catering for the playground opening , Terry's dog , wedgetailed eagles and the guys who headed off for a weekend skiing straight after the planting.
