Army helps out with greening of The Nut

16/12/2016

A team of keen Green Army participants is helping out with weeding and revegetation works at The Nut State Reserve at Stanley.


The Green Army program is a federally funded conservation initiative supported by Manpower and Landcare Australia. The team works four full days each week, under the guidance of their supervisor, Scott Smith, and Parks and Wildlife Service staff.


PWS is hosting the team of six young workers for two six-month stints at the reserve, and they are already kicking goals, planting 1,000 native plants and weeding invasive species. While weed control will be ongoing at The Nut, the weed control and planting work is a big step forward for regrowth and sustainability.
