National Tree Day

10am – 1.30pm, Sunday 30 July
Warners Park, The Outpost, Northbridge
(Parking available in the car park at the end of The Outpost)

Green thumbs of all ages are invited to join Willoughby City Council’s National Tree Day activities on Sunday 30 July at Warners Park, Northbridge.

Attendees will participate in a conservation project that will aim to see 500 plants put in the ground, including a variety of groundcovers, shrubs, grasses and trees. A special planting and activity area will also be available just for children.

The site was once used as a dairy by J.R. Warner in 1914, and as a result, large areas of bushland were cleared. Since being handed over to Council, areas of have progressively been regenerated and it is now ready for new plantings to ensure the conservation of the local indigenous vegetation.

Gloves and planting equipment will be provided and a plant and mulch giveaway will be held throughout the event.

Organised by Planet Ark, National Tree Day calls on all Australians to help their local environment by planting and caring for native plants, and address important environmental issues such as loss of habitat for native wildlife, soil salinity, erosion and long-term carbon offsetting.
