'Reconnecting native vegetation corridors on a landscape scale and protecting them'
Kowree Farm Tree Group Inc is an active group that is committed to assisting with the re-vegetation and protection of native flora and fauna species, whilst maintaining our roots within rural Australia.
Kowree Farm Tree Group Incorporated In March 2016 the Kowree Farm Tree Group members agreed to change the group to Kowree Farm Tree Group Incorporated. Our vision, values and purpose can be found on the 'About Us' page.
Threatened Species Community Volunteer Action Grant In November 2015 the Kowree Farm Tree Group was successful in gaining funding for a 'Kids creating habitat for Cockies' project.
The funding may have finished but the project continues in 2017!
'This project aims to raise the profile of conservation of the South-east Red-tailed Black Cockatoo in the West Wimmera and to establish seedlings as feed trees for the SERtBC, by working with four local schools. St. Malachy's Primary School, Apsley Primary School and Edenhope College will work to propagate feed trees for the critically endangered south-east sub-species of Red-tailed Black Cockatoos. The stringybark seedlings will be planted on numerous sites, all within the SERtBC's home range, and will involve students, teachers, KFTG members and parents. The project will provide the schools with the knowledge and materials required for growing tree seedlings and understanding the needs of the SERtBC.'
