Yellingbo Nature Conservation Reserve is one of the Victorian sites selected for revegetation works under the state government's '2 Million Trees Program'.

Trees and shrubs over 2 metres are the reveg species selected under this Program. This is great, but thanks to the Judith Eardley Wildlife Fund, significant understorey species plantings will now complement and greatly enhance this Program.

Friends of the Helmeted Honeyeater are key partners, with the Program being coordinated by Parks Victoria and Greening Australia. Read more here
