A new trust has been established to
fund innovative projects to improve
the natural environment in the capital
The Capital Region Landkeepers
Trust, which received seed funding
from Greening Australia, was
launched on Wednesday at the
National Botanic Gardens.
It is designed to fund on-ground
restoration work, innovative research,
education and community engagement
