BLACKALL RANGE FOREST RESTORATION: Communities making the connections
In the Sunshine Coast hinterland, there is a vast amount of work underway to restore and connect remnant rainforest and sclerophyll forest on private land. The remarkable aspect of this work is how the communities are connected and working together on each others’ properties to achieve these linkages across the landscape, helping to connect the larger tracts of public estate. This journey will enter the magical hinterland along the ancient songline, welcomed to Country by Auntie Beverly Hand Kabi Kabi elder at a significant cultural site near Landsborough. Visits will then include the Mooloolah River Landcare nursery and biocontrol breeding facility, a rainforest restoration project with Barung Landcare, and then over to Bellthorpe to visit a small community achieving big things for the environment. The journey will showcase the work of Hinterland Bush Links and their Roving Restorers program, and Land for Wildlife which is celebrating its 20th year this year.
Cost: $45 per person (includes transport, morning tea, lunch, water and snacks)
