Green Corps

01/01/2008

The UGLA with assistance from the Gwydir Shire Council, has been happy to receive help from Green Corps, Australia in planting trees near the Gwydir river. The threatened species “Regent Honeyeater’ will benefit from the improved habitat and biodiversity.

Green Corps is a youth initiative volunteer training program working towards the conservation, preservation and restoration of Australia’s natural environment and cultural heritage. Green Corp is also working in Warialda, where with assistance from Warialda Rivercare, a large number of trees, shrubs and grasses were planted on extremely steep sloping areas. They were well mulched and watered, it is hoped that this and the follow up rain will assist their long term survival. The Warialda Rivercare Group are waiting word to see when the Green Corp Team will return.

The boys worked very hard indeed in the heat and were very happy with the progress they made.
