Upper Lachlan Landcare recently hosted Sydney Uni Landcarers for a weekend of tree planting at Fullerton, part of the Great Eastern Ranges Initiative, Kanangra Boyd to Wyangala Link (K2W) revegetation efforts, reconnecting important habitat connections along the Abercrombie River Corridor.

A team of 30 students, headed up by Sydney Uni Landcare chair person, Earl Yandall, and assisted by Fullerton/Hadley Landcarers, Martin Croker and Robert Wong, managed to plant over 1000 trees and shrubs on two sites along the Bolong River.

It was a beautiful day after plenty of rain and the ground was perfect for planting. The young  (and older) landcarers were full of enthusiasm and seemed to have endless energy as they worked tirelessly along up and down very steep terrain.

Fullerton/Hadley Landcare put on a bbq lunch for the very hungry workers and Upper Lachlan Landcare provided dinner and accommodation at the Taralga Pub.

It was such a successful day and we hope to continue this relationship with Sydney Uni Landcare and would particuarly like to thank Martin Croker and Robert Wong for all of their help in organising the day, Fullerton/Hadley Landcare for putting on lunch, Earl Yandall for his excellent organisation and coordination of the event and Brett Yandall for driving the students from Sydney.
