Regent Honeyeater Project Planting Weekends

Regent Honeyeater Project planting weekends

The Regent Honeyeater Project has established itself as one of the most active volunteer conservation projects in the nation.

It has engaged a whole farming community in restoring remnant box-ironbark habitat for the endangered species still living in the district, and attracted ongoing support from a wide cross section of the community to help farmers with the on-ground works.

Propagation and planting days are organised each year for a thousand students from more than 20 local schools and hundreds of volunteers from universities, walking clubs, church groups, bird observers, scouts, environment groups and the like.

Planting weekend dates for late winter / early spring 2019 are:

10-11 August
 Includes Bushdance and mammal spotting on Saturday evening
 31 August - 1 September
 Includes Bushdance and mammal spotting on Saturday evening
