SEEDLINGS FOR LANDCARE PROGRAM
Expression of Interest (EOI) for free seedlings now open
The Seedlings for Landcare Program (formerly the Tree Canopy and Understorey Program) provides free native seedlings for schools, community groups and rural landowners in the Shire of Mundaring. 'Landcare' is community led environmental restoration, by individual landowners or volunteers working on reserves.
The program will focus on improving waterways, providing habitat for wildlife, minimising the spread of dieback and creating additional tree canopy cover in rural areas (where trees can be planted without conflicting with bushfire safety requirements). Under the new program, approximately 20,000 free seedlings will be available for schools, volunteer environmental groups and rural properties. If you are not sure if your property is zoned rural, click here and select the Town Planning module and search your address.
The EOI form may be completed online, downloaded or hard copies can be collected from the front counter at the Shire Administration Office or libraries.
