The Walker Swamp fundraiser passes the $100,000 mark!

Since our community event out at Walker Swamp took place back in September, our focus has shifted to planning for a busy period of on-ground restoration works through the autumn next year.

But in the background, our fundraiser is still quietly ticking along and a number of people and groups have very generously continued to chip in towards helping ensure that we don’t carry a long-term deficit on the land purchase costs associated with the project.

And so… I am proud to announce that after a couple of further donations in the past week, we have finally passed the $100,000 mark – a big achievement and a great team effort!

and the live tally is…


We’ll continue to keep the fundraiser open until we’re eventually able to cover the remaining costs associated with the land purchase (now under $50,000), so if you’d like to chip in, please hit the link below!
