On a sunny Saturday in September, a group of Urban Water Solutions team members volunteered their time to help plant 550 trees.
The planting session was conducted in the Liwik Barring Landscape Conservation Area. This is a new conservation area in Victoria’s Dandenong Ranges. The trees will increase the habitat for the last remaining wild population of the critically endangered Helmeted Honeyeater (Victoria’s bird emblem), and the only lowland population of the critically endangered Leadbeater’s Possum (Victoria’s faunal emblem).
