Yesterday, a keen group of Upper Ovens Valley Landcare volunteers braved the cold, damp weather and spent a few hours releasing hundreds of young trees and shrubs from their guards. The revegetation site is on the Ovens River, near where it meets the Buckland River, at Porepunkah. Our thanks go to the 12 or so members who helped collect, pack and transport the guards. Also, thanks to our Committee Members who organised the equipment/barbecue trailer and sourced supplies for the day.

After the morning’s work was completed, the group enjoyed a barbecue lunch and a lively chat. More photos here.

There is still much to be done to release and stake hundreds of trees and shrubs at the confluence of the Ovens and the Buckland Rivers in our riparian restoration project.
