Planting completed for the John Holland Squirrel Glider Conservation Project

Almost 2,500 mid-storey and shrub species of plants have been installed for the John Holland Squirrel Glider Conservation Project at Bendick Murrell and Crowther along the Blayney to Demondrille non-operational rail line. The seed was collected from local provenance and will provide habitat and foraging opportunities not only for Squirrel Gliders but also for a range of woodland birds including the beautiful but threatened Superb Parrot. Chris from John Holland Pty Ltd rolled up his sleeves and joined in the planting activities with the crew from Oz Plants in Cowra during a week of very cold temperatures. Forecast rain later this week and warming temperatures at the onset of spring should ensure a good start for all the plants.
