National Tree Day Sprouts Again At Kilcunda

Thanks to a grant from Coastcare Victoria, Three Creeks Landcare Group, Bass Coast Landcare Network and Bass Coast Shire Council are once again undertaking a revegetation program on the Kilcunda Foreshore.

The planting activity will coincide with National Tree Day on Sunday, 27 July at 10.00am.

This partnership has been running for four years now and has been responsible for the planting of 6,500 indigenous plants.

Last year they focused on restoring several sites along the rail trail and near the Kilcunda BBQ area

“The aim is to plant about 1,000 indigenous plants and therefore we hope to get a large group of volunteers on the day,” Bass Coast Landcare Network’s David Bateman said.

“We will be providing tools and gloves but supplies are limited, so if you wish to join in then bring some gloves along.

“All of this rewarding work will create an appetite, so Wonthaggi Rotary club will also put on a barbeque which will be ready at the end of the working bee.”

This event and site has also been registered with the official National Tree Day website and can be found at http://treeday.planetark.org/site/52920.

If you would like to come along and lend a hand, please call Dave Bateman at Bass Coast Landcare Network on 0488 399 151 or via email d.bateman@basscoast.vic.gov.au.
