Coming Events

Sat 4 June 10 am - 2 pm Open Day Lake Eacham Nursery
Sat 16 July 2 pm Field Day Burchill's, RN 937 Peeramon Road, Yungaburra

Open Day

TREAT and QPWS will celebrate TREAT's 40th birthday year with an Open Day party at the Lake Eacham Nursery on Sat. 4th June, from 10am till 2pm.

There will be a BIG spread of food for a morning tea at 10.30am, in the top area of the nursery. At 11am there will be a Welcome to Country followed by some short speeches, from Angela for TREAT, Peter Snodgrass and Andrew Millerd for QPWS, and Nigel Tucker who saw the partnership between TREAT and QPWS develop in the early days. Afterwards we'll hear tales from a few landowners who've done successful revegetation over the years.

Tours of the nursery can be given, the Rainforest Display Centre will be open, and plenty of informative brochures will be on hand as well as TREAT volunteers to help with questions. Visitors will probably be thinning out by 2pm, when we'll pack up and clear away. We hope you can come along and celebrate with us!

Because the nursery is a Qld. Govt. workplace, new visitors will need to show proof of vaccination and everyone needs to abide by Covid regulations current at the time. If you bring plants for identification, you will need to bring them in a plastic bag to prevent disease escaping to nursery plants.

Field Day

Our last field day at Burchill's was in 2014 and this coming field day is an opportunity to see how things have progressed, and to see some problems associated with different soils and conditions and how they might be overcome. Meet at the sheds area (past the house) where there's plenty of parking space. See Doug's article this newsletter.

TREAT Display Centre

The TREAT Display Centre is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 1pm, excluding public holidays, staffed by TREAT volunteers.
