Join in and enjoy National Tree Day in Whitehorse

6 Jul 2017

All community members are invited to share in the fun and reward of National Tree Day on Sunday 30 July at Junction Road Reserve, Nunawading.

Whitehorse Councillor Ben Stennett said Whitehorse was renowned for its parks, open spaces and magnificent tree-lined streets, and National Tree Day was a wonderful opportunity to focus on these aspects of the municipality.

“This is Council’s 21st year involved in National Tree Day. Come along and do some planting to beautify the reserve and create shelter for wildlife, then enjoy a sausage sizzle at the end of the session," Cr Stennett said.

National Tree Day provides Australians with the opportunity to care for our unique land and to connect community members. Volunteers have planted more than 25,000 native plants and shrubs in Whitehorse in the time Council has participated with the scheme.

“But this is not just a day to plant trees; volunteers will get the opportunity to meet new people, work on a community project and enjoy the outdoors,” Cr Stennett said.

Councillors and staff will be on hand at Junction Road Reserve to help volunteers, and grasses, shrubs and trees will be provided for volunteers to plant on the day. BYO gumboots, shovel or mattock if possible.
