A group of participants from SIT’s Environmental Management department spent the weekend (6/03 – 8/03) at Tomogalak farm pulling out some wilding pines.
The participants included 11 students and two staff members who were joined by property owners Jeff, Lindsay, John, Faith and Syd Keen. They traversed the hills of Tomogalak and pulled out an estimated number of 2000 wilding pine seedlings.
One of the participants, Samantha Edwards, a second year student was pleased to have pulled about 250 seedlings in one day on March 7th, 2020.
With support from the Mid Dome Wilding Trees Charitable Trust, the Environmental Management students and staff have been participating in this program at Tomogalak farm for over a decade. The Keens are happy to continue this valuable program.
