Summary

Harmony Forest Regeneration Project aims to combine innovative education pathways involving the regeneration of existing vegetation on Yandina School grounds and developing a green corridor linking this existing vegetation with the creek adjacent to the school.

The project aims to carry out:
  • re-vegetation of a native species habitat increasing biodiversity on school grounds through the planting of 2250 plants across three zones in project area and weed treatment of 1ha site prior to each planned planting event
  • possible construction of butterfly shade structure (to be advised by the Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Network)
  • monitoring population and threats protecting breeding (Richmond Birdwing Butterfly Project)
  • planting and maintaining the Mt Emu She-Oak, thus increasing the plant population on the Sunshine Coast
  • weed treatment of riparian zone
  • creating a bush tucker garden
  • creating infrastructure (funding from P&C) for the restoration of an outdoor classroom, sculpture walk and dedicated performance space.
