Nicholson River Landcare share strategies with FoGL

On Saturday May 4th, Nicholson River Landcare hosted 10 members of Friends of the Gippsland Lakes Parks and Reserves on walks on the properties of Leo Rijs and Jim Stephenson. The work of carbon trading company Citola in planting 50000 trees using the “rip and mound” method on the Rijs property was highlighted.

The President of FOGL_logo_parksandreserves_w150FOGL, Wendy Parker, gave a talk to the combined group on the current projects and challenges of her group. This was followed by another great lunch provided by Marcia Rijs and helpers. After lunch the group drove down the road to Jim Stephenson’s property where Jim led a tour highlighting the extensive revegetation works adjacent to the mouth of the Nicholson River. The day concluded with coffee and cake at the Stephenson homestead.
