A Snapshot of some achievements and initiatives
Bonny Hills Landcare 75th Anniversary
To celebrate the Bonny Hills Landcare groups 75th Anniversary, they had a successful day of tree planting in the Rainbow Beach Reserve and along the "Yellow Brick Road" in October! Thanks is extended to everyone that made this day a success!
A persistent effort over many years has dramatically reduced the weed load and allowed for the natural regeneration of local native plant species. The group controls weeds such as bitou bush, ground asparagus and ockna.

Native Plants and Climate Resilience
Are you considering planting at your Landcare site or farm, or applying for a grant that involves planting and requires development of a climate ‘ready’ plant Iist? Brunswick Valley Landcare has produced a very useful guide on this topic.
While this document was produced by Brunswick Valley Landcare and entitled Climate Resilient Landscapes, A Planting Guide for the Northern Rivers Region, many of the species have widespread distribution along our coastline. For each plant the following information is given: rate of growth, height; drought, fire and flood resilience, salt, frost and wind tolerance; carbon sequestration and habitat and food.
It covers these habitats: Coastal and Estuarine, Riverine and Alluvial; Foothills and Hinterland, Ridged and Ranges and plants suitable for fire prone area are listed in a separate section.
