National Tree Day 2023

Aug 4, 2023News

Following Uncle Dave Wandin’s Welcome to Country all 465 of us spread out to plant trees to make our suburb cooler and greener. We also planted shrubs, grasses and wildflowers to provide habitat for native butterflies, moths, hover flies, bees and birds. They act as protectors of our tree canopy by eating pest species that attack trees. There was plenty of time to get to know our neighbours, take a close up look at water bugs, learn how the wetlands filters pollution from stormwater before it enters Steele Creek, borrow a book from Library on the Move or just enjoy sit on a beautifully designed mat made form recycled plastic.
