It is great to report that around 500 trees and shrubs were recently planted at Blackwood Campsite just south of Balingup. The site has been very bare since a bushfire destroyed the surrounding pine plantation.
A mix of mid and understory native species of local provenance were planted across the northern and eastern side of the site. When mature they will provide much-needed shelter from the wind at this exposed site which overlooks the valley.
The planting was undertaken by Parks and Wildlife Indigenous Trainees and National Park Rangers based in the Blackwood District.
The Foundation purchased the plants from donated funds – including a $1000 donation from the Talison Lithium mine in Greenbushes.
Thank you to all our donors for your support.
