Mornington Peninsula Shire invites you to take part in a community planting event to celebrate National Tree Day on Sunday 29 July.

National Tree Day is Australia’s largest community tree planting event and this year’s Shire event will take place at Hillview Community Reserve in Dromana.

Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne said “we’ll be planting local indigenous plants to provide habitat for our many native animals and increase biodiversity in the area. Bring your whole family along and let’s get planting!”.

Seawinds Ward Councillor Antonella Celi said “this is a great opportunity to get together as a community and do our bit to contribute to enhancing our native flora and fauna”.

Seawinds Ward Councillor Simon Brooks said “we encourage the community to care for our environment year-round, this is a special day to get involved”.

Seawinds Ward Councillor Frank Martin said “this is a great opportunity to contribute and get to know your local community”.

Tools will be provided on the day but please bring your own gardening gloves along.

This planting event will complement the important biodiversity protection works that the Peninsula Mountain Park Committee have undertaken in the reserve for over a decade that has aimed at reducing the impact of environmental weeds into Arthurs Seat State Park and increase habitat connectivity. 

National Schools Tree Day is taking place on Friday 27 July 2018.
