Nature Valley has partnered with Landcare Australia to support the rejuvenation of bushfire affected walking trails with the launch of the Nature Valley Trails Landcare Grants program.
The partnership will deliver on ground projects to two not-for-profit environmental conservation, groups located on New South Wales’ mid-north coast and the Adelaide Hills. They received a combined total of $80,000 in funding. For the remainder of 2020 until mid-2021, these groups will be implementing exciting projects.
The Summit to Sea Walking Track is a 12km trail connecting the summit of Mt Yarrhapinni to the coast at Grassy Head. When 68 percent of the Nambucca Valley was impacted by the 2019 bushfires, Yarriabini National Park a vital refuge for animals. As the fires did not directly affect the park itself, it remains one of the most important pockets of rainforest on the coast.
This project will enable Nambucca Valley Landcare in collaboration with National Parks and Wildlife Service, Nambucca Valley Council, volunteers and local schools, to enhance accessibility along the track by adding boardwalks, steps and managing vegetation. When the Track officially reopens in September 2021, it will be an amazing walk across a mosaic of different habitats, providing visitors with the opportunity to connect to an area that is highly significant to the Dunghutti, Ngambaa and Gumbaynggirr Aboriginal people.
