See the maps below. The yellow shapes represent the areas that already have trees but may benefit from understorey enhancement with shrubs for food and/or shelter for wildlife (from bees and butterflies to bettongs and bandicoots). The red lines roughly represent areas where it is challenging for gliders, koalas and other wildlife to travel between areas for breeding, foraging, and as escape routes during disasters. These areas need some more trees to solve this problem, whether just a couple of trees to help gliders glide across your property to reach another forested area or a more serious planting of groups of trees and shrubs.

If you live in/near any of these areas, your involvement in this project would be greatly appreciated.
If you don’t live in an area on the maps, come anyway. You may be able to help with planting, or you might find that you do fit into another identified area in the Scenic Rim.
You can also help just by attending and joining our discussions, and inviting your neighbours and friends – especially if they live in these areas
Wines available for tasting (4 tastes free of charge), glass ($5) or bottle to take home (various):
  • Bunjurgen’s own 2018 Shiraz (very soft and very popular)
  • Bunjurgen’s own 2019 Ruby Port
  • Bunjurgen’s own 2010 Tawny port
  • Non-estate 2017 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

 

RSVP:   If you are able to come to this information session, please let Linda Kimber (head of Boonah Landcare) know by email (click here) or send SMS to 0449179886. Or send an email message to Scenic Rim WPSQ by Sunday 3rd October.
