Green Army commence work on Middle Gully Trail and linkages
Thursday, 30 July 2015

Tambo Bluff Landcare Coastcare (TBLC) is very pleased to announce commencement of works on the Middle Gully Walking Track, a project supported by the Australian Government’s Green Army Programme and sponsored by TBLC.

The Green Army is supporting local environmental and conservation projects in East Gippsland.

With assistance from the Commonwealth Department of the Environment, the Green Army will provide 8000 plants and approximately 700 metres of walking track through the Middle Gully reserve with aims to enhance habitat, water quality and biodiversity, mitigate soil erosion and establish a valuable community asset.

A team of nine enthusiastic young workers and an experienced supervisor have been engaged for 6 months to complete the project. TBLC members will also provide assistance and they extend a very warm welcome to the crew.

The Tambo Bluff subdivision includes approximately 40 hectares of public open space comprising freshwater lagoons, Lake King foreshore cliffs and remnant-rainforest gullies.

TBLC welcomes new members and hopes to attract an enthusiastic crowd to the completion celebration event later this year.

The project is also supported by the East Gippsland Landcare Network, East Gippsland Water, Gunaikurnai Land & Waters Aboriginal Corporation and East Gippsland Shire Council.

TBLC gratefully acknowledges Darren Chester MP’s support of Landcare in East Gippsland and his help in support of this project.
