In mid-September we achieved our 2017 (calendar year) objective of 20,000 plants in the ground, thanks to the many volunteers actively working in the Park. In August 2,166 volunteer hours were recorded; an all-time record for us and almost double the long term average. Well done!
And we’ve been doing the sums on the last 10 years:
- Our $ expenditure was $1.3 million, $245k of that spent on contractors for major works like the Southern Wetlands.
- Our volunteers contributed the equivalent of $4.6 million in time (more than 150,000 hours)
