Greening the Heysen Trail

Click on image to view larger image

The newly formed Greening Committee has set its first project for 2012. It is planned to survey and plant appropriate trees and understory around Hiskey’s Hut, near Georgetown.

Those who are familiar with Hiskey’s will be aware that the hut sits in an open, rather desolate road reserve and is a manageable first project.

It is planned to approach Trees for Life to provide surplus plants, from the 2012 season, for about 100 trees to plant around the hut.

The committee is looking for help with this project, planned dates for parts one (survey and hole digging) and two (planting) are late May and late June respectively.

Contact the office if you are interested in participating.
