Pioneer Catchment & Landcare Group assists schools across the Mackay region in fulfilling their landcare goals and projects. Below are some examples of activities we can assist with:
- Advice and management assistance to school for revegetation or restoration projects. An example is the Mackay Christian College Vines Creek Wetland Restoration Project.
- School clean-up days or events. PCL has been facilitating a Great Northern Clean-up event with St Patrick’s College for many years now.
- Schools tree planting days. On grounds or larger events such as Schools National Tree Day.
- Nursery activities. Native plant propagation activities, which are suitable for most age groups. PCL has hosted many groups at the nursery from kindy classes to high school groups.
- School native gardens plant selection and planning as well as access to free native tubestock from the Mackay Regional Council.
If your school is in the Mackay region it is eligible for support from your local landcare group. Please contact us for more information!
