Ian & Shirley Norman Foundation
The ‘Regenerate before it’s too late’ project engages the community about the importance of large old trees and how to protect them.
Over a three year period, 2022-25, Connecting Country will host a series of workshops and produce communication materials to support the project. Connecting Country will also help local landholders with practical on-ground actions to protect their large old trees and ensure the next generation of large old trees across the landscape. Additionally, the project solicits citizen scientists to help through an interactive mapping portal to register old trees – more about the project
