Get ready for planting at Riverbend Historical Park

Residents are being encouraged to grab their gardening gloves and head to Riverbend Historical Park on Sunday to help plant native trees, shrubs and grasses.

Wyndham councillor Peter Gibbons said the planting session was a chance for people to give back to the environment and get to know like-minded people.

“By taking part in this event for a few hours, there will be long-term benefits to our community and the work will leave a lasting mark on one of our most popular reserves,” he said.

“Surveys also show people value the other benefits of trees, including improving storm water management, reducing the need for air-conditioning and improving air quality.”

The planting will run from 10.30am.
