Central West Lachlan Landcare (CWLL), Forbes Shire Council, Planet Ark and Toyota are inviting Forbes residents to take part in a local National Tree Day event. The National Tree Day event is taking place at the intersection of northern end of Lima Road and Bogan Gate Road, Forbes, on Saturday, 29 July. Activities start from 11am. Please bring your lunch and a chair to join with the group for lunch at the completion of planting.
National Tree Day is Australia’s largest tree-planting and nature care event. Since Planet Ark launched National Tree Day in 1996, more than three million participants have planted 21 million native trees, shrubs and grasses.
Landcare Co-ordinator, Marg Applebee explained “the previous National Tree Day project is flourishing and we look forward to continuing the fantastic work that has already been achieved through these community planting days. We encourage people who are planning to attend to register at the Planet Ark website.”
Forbes Toyota has been a constant support for National Tree Day, providing Tree Day merchandise and tree guards. It is also great to once again be working with Forbes Shire Council who have prepared the site for planting.
National Tree Day Manager Debbie Agnew says, “Our research shows that you can grow happier by getting outside and connecting with nature, so National Tree Day is a free and easy way to boost these feelings.”
