A family day out at Brucknell Scout Camp will bring to a close the St Patrick's Day bushfire recovery events.
Heytesbury District Landcare Network (HDLN) member Geoff Rollinson said a wide range of activities were being prepared for the Healing and the Landscape event from 10am-4pm this Sunday.
"We will have market stalls, music, the Lion's Club barbeque, plus a range of children's activities including a jumping castle and zoob balls," Mr Rollinson said.
"Knowing it is Father's Day, this will be a great chance to bring dad out and have some family fun.
"There has been great support from local businesses including Timboon Fine Ice Cream and Sow and Piglets Brewery and White Ibis Nursery will have a display of locally indigenous plants."
Mr Rollinson said the event would be a chance to commemorate the efforts of all community members after the St Patrick's Day fires.
"This is towards the conclusion of the recovery period (for shire councils and catchment management authorities), but for HDLN it continues," Mr Rollinson said.
"This year we are planting 120,000 seedlings, compared to 40,000 seedlings annually in other years.
"The increase is being driven by the landholder appetite to restore the vegetation on their land.
"Farmers feel better when they have trees and vegetation around them."
Mr Rollinson said the event was being staged at Brucknell Scout Camp to help people reconnect to the natural environment.
"Brucknell is the perfect venue for family events, the natural setting is symbolic of restoration of the landscape," he said.
"The fact we have trebled the number of seedlings in the HDLN nursery is an indication people want trees back in the landscape."
