Be part of National Tree Day and join us on the GreenWay at Richard Murden Reserve, Haberfield to help plant native species indigenous to the local area.
The National Tree Day event will be held on Sunday 29 July from 10.00am until 12.00pm. Richard Murden Reserve can be accessed from Hawthorne Parade, Haberfield.
"We are encouraging residents to connect with the community and get involved in
National Tree Day," says Adam Ward, GreenWay Biodiversity Officer.
"It's easy, fun and is a small investment of time for great environmental, community and health benefits."
This will be the 3rd annual GreenWay National Tree Day event. During previous events volunteers have planted over 1,000 local native plants in the GreenWay.
National Tree Day is Australia's biggest community tree-planting and nature care event.
National Tree Day is a special day for all Australians to help out by
planting and caring for native trees and shrubs to improve the environment in
which they live. National Tree Day began in 1996 and since then more than 2.8
million volunteers have planted over 17 million native trees and shrubs! It's a
day to get down and get your hands dirty to help the planet!
Gloves, tools and plants will be provided. Please bring your own drinking water. Please wear long trousers, a long-sleeved shirt, a hat and enclosed shoes. Planting will go ahead rain or shine, so wear appropriate clothing for the weather conditions of the day.
Children are most welcome, but must be under parent or carer's supervision at all times on the site.
