Looking for an outdoor family activity that does something positive for the environment? Here is a great oportunity to help restore some bushland to encourage native birds and wildlife.
Residents, community groups and businesses are invited to join us in planting locally native trees, shrubs and grasses at our next community planting event. This planting will increase biodiversity and habitat for native birds back along the Bells Creek Corridor.
Join us on Sunday 23 October, 2016 at Aunty Mavis Halvorson Park, off Amsterdam Street, Oakhurst between 9am and 1pm.
We will provide all plants, materials and refreshments. For safety reasons, participants must wear closed in shoes, and are encouraged to wear a hat, long pants and a long sleeved shirt.
Planting is suitable for all ages, so come along, and bring your family and friends.
You can also add to your garden by participating in this event, every participant can take home a free plant.
This project is delivered as part of the 1 million trees – Cumberland Stepping Stones Program and will enhance local amenity.
Register your attendance here to be kept informed of any changes to this event and to be sent a reminder. For further information please call council on 9839 6000.
