This Grass 'n' Creeks event has been created by young people, for young people, to act & lead with Landcare! Our new local Intrepid group are excited to be working with Whian Whian Landcare and the Dorrobee Grass Reserve Trust to bring forth this day of Landcare, connecting to country, munching on local food, making new friends, and most of all, fun!
Take part in Landcare Australia’s 2017 Summer Raffle, and you’ll help support our Aussie environment, ensuring others will be able to enjoy our tropical north for generations to come.
Proceeds from ticket sales will support community projects funded through Landcare Australia.
