40,000 Trees

November 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Recent Projects

A grand and somewhat crazy project captured the imagination of the Barkers Creek Landcare Network.  The aim was to save 40,000 seedlings with only 8 weeks to make it happen.  Regional Envirosense was engaged as the works coordinator to help get the project off the ground.

The team engaged an event manager, a social media consultant and a works coordinator and started networking. Connecting Country offered support and the project became feasible.  Landholders were approached and the initial response was good. A timetable was developed and the 40000 tree project was launched.

The aim was 1 day and 1000 volunteers to plant 40,000 seedlings across multiple planting sites within an 8km stretch of Harcourt and Harcourt North.
