Talking with ABC Radio about NGT’s success in the final round of 20 Million Trees grants

In December 2017, the Australian Government announced the final round of grant recipients under the 20 Million Trees Program.

Of the 52 projects approved for funding nationally, NGT was extremely fortunate to receive funding for two projects, to continue revegetation work on our two restoration reserves: Eaglehawk Waterhole and Mt Burr Swamp.

If you’d like to hear more about our plans, then please have a listen to the interview below that was recorded with ABC South East radio a few weeks ago.

And if you’d like to get involved when we get planting later this year, then please get in touch, or simply keep an eye out in the NGT Newsletter over the coming months for the finer details!

These two projects are jointly funded through Nature Glenelg Trust and the Australian Government’s 20 Million Trees Program.

The newly-erected electric fence at Mt Burr Swamp, enclosing the previously open western side of the wetland and excluding stock for the first time in over 60 years.

The wetland edge at Mt Burr Swamp that will be the focus for revegetation efforts through one of the grants over the next few years.
