Queen Elizabeth II Platinum Jubilee Print Page Print this page

The trees were planted, and a commemorative plaque unveiled, in honour of Queen Elizabeth II to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee and acknowledge her 70 years of service as Australia`s Head of State. 

Shepherds Flat Landcare received funding of $5,050 from the Queen`s Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting Program which will run from 2021-2024. The project will plant trees at Larni Barramal Yaluk (formerly Jim Crow Creek), install a commemorative plaque and hold an event in honour of The Queen’s Jubilee. This will enhance the tree canopy and provide additional habitat for native fauna.

Elizabeth II (21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022) was Queen of the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth realms from 6 February 1952 until her death in 2022. She was queen regnant of 32 sovereign states during her lifetime, and was head of state of 15 realms at the time of her death. Her reign of 70 years and 214 days was the longest of any British monarch and the longest verified reign of any female monarch in history. 

SFLG had a 'Commemorative Event' planting day Sunday 28th August. This event was to honour our commitment to the 'Planting Trees for the Queen's Jubilee' grant we received for 2022 and 2023. In the week leading up to Sunday we prayed that the rain would hold off, and it did! 21 of us spent 2 hours planting the 300 tube stock. Unfortunately, the Honourable Catherine King, MP was unable to join us but Deputy Mayor, Cr. Jen Bray, Hepburn Shire joined us for the unveiling of the plaque for the significant tree (Eucalyptus melliodora - Yellow Box). We all then enjoyed a festive BBQ and the cutting of the significant cake, prepared by Amber at the Hepburn General store. Landcare work at our 2 major sites is supported with funding from the Australian Govt., Hepburn Shire and the NCCMA.
