Trees of the Wimmera Competition

Jul 01, 2016

Wimmera Landcare is running a Wimmera-wide competition between July 2016 and July 2017 to display what trees are out in the region.

They intend to run a monthly competition, with a different theme each month (see below). Entries should include a photo of the tree and short story describing the tree and/or its history.

Each month’s winner and story will appear in the local press, on Wimmera CMA's website and Facebook page and the various Wimmera Landcare groups' Facebook pages.

The Trees of the Wimmera competition is supported by the Wimmera Regional Landcare Facilitators through the Australian Government’s National Landcare Programme.
