Join Murrumbateman Landcare Group to celebrate World Environment Day 2017 and Greening Australia’s official 35th birthday! We’ll be working to enhance critically endangered Grassy Box Gum Woodlands on a property near Gunning. We will be planting a 1.5km wildlife corridor, helping to provide habitat and connectivity for native fauna.

It will be a great site for planting for all ages, and the local Rural Fire Service will be putting on a country BBQ for us!
