The local community spirit is well and truly environmentally minded with more than 170 volunteers turning up on Sunday, June 26 to plant out 1,300 trees at the Doonan Creek Environment Reserve (pictured). There were 91 adults and 79 children with their green thumbs at the ready and the family-friendly event was hosted by Sunshine Coast Council. The plants were provided by Healthy Land & Water and the project was supported by the Australian Government’s Bushfire Recovery Program for Wildlife and their Habitat. Division 9 Councillor Maria Suarez, who was at the planting, wanted to extend a public “thank you” to everyone who came along, saying It’s amazing to see how the reserve is being planted out! The trees planted at the Doonan Creek Environment Reserve, an Environment Levy purchased reserve, will provide winter food trees for the threatened grey-headed flying fox, glossy black cockatoos, koalas and other wildlife.
