The City of Greater Bendigo Council is holding a community tree planting activity, at the junction of the Bendigo Creek Trail and the O’Keefe Rail Trail at White Hills, to celebrate the 20th National Tree Day. The activity is scheduled to be held between 10.30 and 2pm on Sunday July 26, 2015.
Members of the community are invited to come along and help plant 4,000 native plants along-side the Bendigo Creek, 300m downstream from Weeroona Avenue.
All participants are asked to wear suitable clothing, footwear and gloves. Please bring a hand trowel if you have one, planting tools will be supplied. Participants are also asked to register at the desk adjacent to the planting area on arrival. Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian accompany and register on their behalf. Parking is available in the Bendigo Rowing Club car park, enter off Weeroona Avenue and follow the tree day signs to the planting site.
