THE Dorrigo Aboriginal Green Team is continuing their successes with all four trainees recently completing their Certificate 2 in Conservation and Land Management.

National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) Pest Management Officer Mr Tim Scanlon said the green team has undertaken bush regeneration works at various sites across the Dorrigo Plateau as well as completing their studies.

"The Dorrigo Green Team, or Blackfoot Environmental Warriors as they prefer to be known, was initially funded by the Federal Government's Biodiversity Fund through the Jaliigirr Alliance project," Tim said.

"Over the past seven months the team have undertaken bush regeneration works at several properties owned by the Dorrigo Plateau Local Aboriginal Land Council (LALC) and within Dorrigo National Park, as well as paving works at Dangar Falls.

"In 2014 the team will be undertaking work on their existing work sites and following receipt of other external funding, additional work sites in Dorrigo National Park, Junuy Juluum National Park, along the Bielsdown River in Dorrigo with the Cork Memorial Trust and other contract works."

The team works three days a week and includes training provided by Environmental Training and Employment (EnviTE).

The team is managed by a steering committee comprising Dorrigo Plateau LALC, NPWS, ETC, EnviTE, Bellingen Shire Council, North Coast Local Land Services and Bellinger Landcare.
