Tree day grows in popularity

WARRNAMBOOL residents are being encouraged to get back to their roots for the Coastcare Landcare Group’s annual National Tree Day event.

It will be the 11th year the group will focus on the Flume.

The two-hour planting program usually attracts up to 200 people. 

Committee member Kate McInnes said she hoped that no matter what the weather, people would don their warm clothes and bring their spades to help out on July 27. 

“It attracts a whole range of people, including lots of families who bring their prams and little kids,” Ms McInnes said. She said the group had seen many volunteers become regulars who returned year after year.

She said the Flume had significantly improved thanks to projects including the National Tree Day event and the recent ReVeg the Flume campaign.

Those wishing to volunteer should RSVP to Kate McInnes on 5559 4405.
