National Tree Day is on Sunday 29th of July and this week schools across the country did their bit, hosting events during school hours.
At Frayne College, Baranduda students and staff teamed up with Glen from Baranduda Landcare for their event. Also along to lend a hand was Sue from the National Environment Centre and her students studying conservation and land management. In all, over 500 trees, shrubs and grasses were planted in the school grounds. They add to an already impressive array, planted during similar events over many years.
Lots of fun! You can do your bit on Sunday at one of the many community planting events. There are plenty of local events listed on Ecoportal for Sunday, including at Willow Park, Baranduda, Table Top, West Albury, and Yackandandah. Nationally there are thousands of events scheduled.
