Young people envited to restore koala habitat
Lismore City Council is sponsoring a new Green Corps team in partnership with EnviTE NSW to commence important local environmental restoration works.
Places are available on the team for young people aged 17 to 20 who are looking for ways to make a difference in their local environment while gaining skills in habitat restoration and being paid to do so!
The Tucki Tucki Creek and its endangered communities of platypus and koala will be targeted for ecological protection. Extensive tree planting and bush regeneration will form the basis of this six month program.
Green Corps graduates often revise their plans for the future after leaving school because the skills they get make them more employable in this growing local industry, said Phillip Reed, EnviTEs Community Relations Coordinator.
