Cannibal Creek Landcare Group – Excursion Two
Our Year 11 Environmental Science and Year 7 & 8 PACT students spent time helping volunteers from the Cannibal Creek Landcare Group – planting over 200 trees on another property that was heavily impacted by the bushfires of 2019/2020.
The property has recently been acquired by Gumbaya Park and our volunteer work is helping to establish a large corridor of native trees that will be used for feeding Koalas kept at Gumbaya Park.
We planted Eucalyptus species that are the preferred diet of Southern Koala populations: Swamp gum, Manna Gum, Black Peppermint, Mountain Grey Gum.
In the afternoon the Head Animal Keeper at Gumbaya Park provided us with a BBQ lunch and free access to Gumbaya Park’s animal enclosures. All of our students thoroughly enjoyed the day, despite the wet weather!
