Event description

Help plant indigenous trees and shrubs to provide pollinating plants for bees and insects, as well as feed and protect an amazing diversity of local and migrating birds. You'll also support the health and well-being of the thousands of people who walk, run and ride through the park daily, and offset carbon emissions from vehicles travelling the nearby Westgate Freeway.

No experience or equipment required. Plants are indigenous and generously provided by the onsite nursery Bili Nursery and Landcare.
