On Friday 1 November we were privileged to have 20 staff from Veolia Australia and New Zealand come from Sydney to participate in one of their Bushcare days. Bethany King, a Gully Traditional Owner and the daughter of David King, organised this event. She combined her deep connection with country and her role as Human Resources Coordinator at Veolia.
In a tremendous effort on a very hot day the staff planted 400 native seedlings in an area previously cleared with the help of the BMCC urban weeds program. These seedlings were provided by Wildplant Rescue and include ferns and shrub layer plants. They continued then to rehabilitate a soak area further on the site.
The Gully Traditional Owners, the Upper Kedumba Bushcare Group and Bushcare are very grateful for this help to accelerate the restoration of the natural environment at Upper Kedumba.
