Volunteers plant more trees
at Mary Cairncross Reserve

A total of 400 trees were planted and mulched at the Mary Cairncross Reserve Annexe at the National Tree Day Plant last Sunday at Maleny.   Caloundra City Council and Mary Cairncross Reserve wanted to thank all the volunteer tree planters who attended.   “We have extended the boundary of this valuable parcel of rainforest and created more habitat for the many bird and animal species that call this home,” said Mark Bonner, Coordinator of Mary Cairncross Reserve.   “We hope to continue the plantings here in the future to create a larger linkage to the main Reserve nearby, and to build on the edge species as a buffer for this Annexe. “

Another thankyou also to Lions Club of Maleny and Cr Pauline Clayton for a welcome sausage sizzle, Maleny Rural Fire Brigade for watering our trees, and to Barung Landcare and Brushturkey Enterprises for helping to organise the day.   Remember, our Hollow Inhabitants talk by Allan Franks of Hollow Log Homes, this Wednesday night, 7.30pm at the Reserve.    All are welcome for this fascinating talk on bird, mammals and reptiles which depend on tree hollows as a home.
