Youngtown Primary School – TAS

Since 2010, Youngtown Primary School Landcare Group has been involved in a partnership with Tamar Natural Resource Management (NRM) and the City of Launceston Council to revegetate their local reserve, Youngtown Regional Park. Over the last seven years, students have planted over 4000 local native trees, shrubs and grasses in the reserve, to increase habitat for wildlife, improve plant diversity, create a wildlife corridor between the reserve and others close by, and improve amenities for people using the reserve’s walking trail. Through their involvement with the revegetation project, students have gained an understanding of the importance of green spaces and the need to give back for future generations.
