Free Trees for TM Landcare
The Kelloggs Be Natural program is working with Landcare Australia to provide 10,000 trees to restore and revegetate important environmental sites across the country.
In Queensland only one Landcare group has been singled out - ours! We will be given 500 trees to plant this year in our Corridors sites to increase biodiversity.
Be Natural supported TM Landcare in 2010 to roll out the Cedar Creek Corridor Enhancement project which also involved local school students participating in a range of natural resource management activities.
We're grateful that our valuable work on the mountain has been recognised in this practical way.
