Rotary Adopt a Tree- Moorlands Dalton
Moorlands is owned and managed by Vince Heffernan, a 6th generation sheep grazier and noted expert on new forms of regenerative land management. In the past 20 years great efforts were undertaken to rebuild the functionality of the natural ecosystem at Moorlands. This included the planting of >60,000 native trees, shrubs, grasses & native aquatic plants. Vince is also the Chair of Upper Lachlan Landcare Inc. which supports land owners in the region to enable them to care for the environment. For more information: https://moorlandslamb.com.au/ Two re-greening events (each of 1,000 tubestock) are scheduled for 2 weekends this September to fit in with the very busy farming schedule. The tubestock comprising eucalypts, acacia, callistemon and many other native species indigenous to the area will be sourced locally and from the Menai Wildflower Group.
