20 million trees grant success!
We are proud for this project to be selected, alongside so many great projects, as a recipient in the latest round of 20 Million Trees Grants!
QLc is a member of the steering committee and will play a key role in implementation. The project will be managed by Molonglo Catchment Group.
The project will enhance the extent and connectivity of Box Gum Grassy Woodland near Queanbeyan. The area is part of the White Box-Yellow Box-Blakely's Red Gum Grassy Woodland and Derived Native Grassland critically endangered ecological community.
Properties involved in the project including Wandiyali Restoration Trust have a commitment to conservation land management. Tree planting will provide regeneration of species which are not regenerating well naturally. Without active regeneration, the ecological community will degrade due to a lack of tree canopy species recruitment and eventual death of established trees. Planting and maintenance will be conducted by Conservation Volunteers Australia and the local community.
