We had three very successful days of planting as part of our Pages Creek Catchment Restoration Plan, which aims to increase connectivity for wildlife throughout the Pages Creek Catchment and improve the habitat of the threatened Green and Gold Frog (Litoria raniformis).

Corporate Environmental Volunteers

The corporate volunteer planting days with Manheim-Cox Automotive and Destination Southern Tasmania went very well.  Their teams had a great time getting their hands in the dirt and helping create some precious habitat.

Open Volunteer Day

On Sunday 20th, we had an open volunteer day - about 30 eager vollies came, lots of young ones and Landcare Tasmania staff.  We had great planting weather with blue skies, and a bit of rain in the days to follow.  A special shout-out to Rachel and Daniel from the newly formed Pages Creek Catchment Group for attending.  Thanks to all who came along and helped with this mammoth job!

Next Steps

This project will continue next year when we plant out another 1,000 trees.  

Landcare Tasmania is welcoming expression of interests from businesses or organisations who would like to join the fun next winter in 2024 to help establish this biodiverse planting for habitat and landscape connectivity in the Pages Creek Catchment, or other projects statewide.
