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.

Christ Church Grammar School

On Friday 15th July students from Christ Church Grammar School in South Yarra returned to Kinglake to volunteer again with the UGLN fire recovery program.
This time the students takled a variety of diferent tasks.



They started the day installing nest boxes at a local landcare members property.



After lunch at the local bakery they got stuck into some tree planting at a bushland reserve in Pheasant Creek and then finished off the day cut & painting small holly bushes that are invading another section of the reserve.


Teacher Gay Wales and the kids did a great job and we appreciate them taking time out of their school holidays to help us.
