Learn about old native trees

Tanya Loos birdwatching

Monday 16 April 2018

If you love old native trees then make sure you come along to Mount Alexander Shire Council's next free Sustainable Living Workshop where you can learn all about them and the wildlife that call these trees home.

“Large old Eucalypts are valuable for so many reasons – they have abundant seed, flowers and nectar and provide homes for hundreds of species of wildlife,” said Tanya Loos from Connecting Country and workshop guest speaker.

“I am really excited to share my enthusiasm and love of these trees at this workshop,” said Ms Loos.

“We'll be taking participants on a walk through the Guildford Saddle Club which is home to many large old trees and I'll explain what we can all do to best care for and protect them," she said.

The Guildford Saddle Club land is managed by Council in partnership with the Committee of Management.

“The Guildford Saddle Club is a great example of how to best manage these old trees so come along to the workshop, bring the family, and enjoy the fine autumn weather,” she said.
