    Planting trees and removing weeds

    Planting trees and removing weeds

    Planting a single tree is the easiest legacy any human can make. A tree can last centuries, produce oxygen and improve human wellbeing. Environmentally, a tree stabilises soil, preventing sediment run off into waterways. Habitats and sanctuaries are created for wildlife.
    In this episode, we speak to Shelly McArdle about how she has watched indigenous youth restore habitat at their school in Yeppoon. Across the way, Sabrina Burke from Cap Coast Landcare paints a picture of the volunteers who are having similar impacts further down the Figtree catchment.
    Bringing these two projects together results in improved water quality draining into the Great Barrier Reef across the Capricorn Coast.
