Restoring landscapes across the Mount Alexander Region

Come planting with Friends of Campbells Creek Landcare – National Tree Day

Posted on 26 July, 2018 by Asha

Each year Friends of Campbells Creek takes part in two important Australia-wide events. One is Clean up Australia Day, held earlier in the year. The other is National Tree Day, which will be held next Sunday (29 July 2018).  National Tree Day brings communities together to re-establish native vegetation all across the nation.

The Friends will be planting at two sites along the creek, possibly three if we have enough people attending. There will be a free BBQ lunch afterwards. The group would love to see you there!

Details are as follows:

The plan: We’ll be planting trees, shrubs and robust herbs like Lomandras to accentuate one of the main entrances to the Campbells Creek trail.

When: Meet at 10:00 am on Sunday 29 July at the outdoor environment classroom (the colourful tables and benches).  We’ll finish around mid-day with a BBQ.

Get there: Park outside the Campbells Creek Park in Main Road, Campbells Creek, opposite the hardware store. Follow the winding concrete path westwards towards the creek and then walk upstream along the creek track, crossing the footbridge and continuing for another 70 metres. OR: Park in Elizabeth Street 40 metres north of Cemetery Road and walk 150 metres east along the feeder track (you can drive in but there’s limited parking space in the reserve).

Bring: Hats, gloves, sturdy clothing, enclosed footwear, protection suitable for the weather, and your own water. With rain forecast in the preceding week, gumboots might be useful.
