Revegetation workshop

This free workshop is held at Ian Freeman's former property near Lake Eacham, on Cutler Road off Lake Barrine Road, where hole digging and planting can be demonstrated. There is an initial information session held in the shed, to talk about what is involved in site preparation and maintenance as well as the actual planting of trees. Over the years, a lot of expertise has been acquired by Mark and Angela McCaffrey and Peter Snodgrass and they give the latest information on herbicides and other methods of grass and weed control, plus fertilisers. Notes are provided. A TREAT morning tea is held before the demonstrations of hole digging and tree planting, and the morning usually finishes about midday. Please register with Barbara Lanskey (ph 4091 4468) if you wish to attend this workshop.

Christmas/New Year

The Christmas break-up party will be held on Friday 15th December. TREAT buys some platter goodies for the occasion and members often bring special fare as well. The QPWS staff from next door come over and we all indulge in convivial company and conversation until most of the food disappears. It's a time when we hope members we no longer see often, will come and say hello again. The nursery will still be open for a working bee on Friday 22nd, but will be closed for the Christmas - New Year period. Working bees start again on Friday 5th January.

TREAT Display Centre

The TREAT Display Centre is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9am to 1pm, excluding public holidays, staffed by TREAT volunteers.
