A grand total of 12,358 seedlings call a corridor home!

Glenburnie Primary School, Newbery Park Primary School and Millicent High school have been busy over the last 8 weeks. As part of the ForestrySA Biodiversity Corridor Schools Program, a grand total of 12,358 native plant seedlings have been put into the ground at the Honan to Woolwash and Dry Creek to Honeysuckle corridor and the Pasture Strip at Wandilo forest.

Groups of up to 32 students at the time spent several days out in the corridors planting and tree guarding to give the seedlings the best possible start in the new habitat. A lot of hard work went into this year’s revegetation project but most of all it was fun and lots of enthusiastic and happy faces were observed along the way.

To ensure that all the seedlings got planted before spring, we also organised a couple of community planting days. Not even heavy showers could stop the keen volunteers to plant the last few plants of the season.

We would like to thank all students, volunteers and project partners for a great planting season and awesome team work, and are looking forward to the next planting season!
