Come and join us for great activities on National Tree Day, organised by Glenelg Hopkins CMA, Southern Grampians Shire Council, Taylor Toyota and Wannon Water.
Hamilton’s Grange Burn river precinct will be re-vegetated when more than 1000 trees are planted for National Tree Day activities on Sunday, 28 July.
Southern Grampians Shire Council, Glenelg Hopkins CMA, Taylor Toyota and Wannon Water have all come together to create a fun, family-focused event which will aim to plant more than 1000 trees as part of a project to beautify the local waterway.
While there will be plenty of tree planting happening, there will also be other activities on the banks of the Grange Burn.
There will be some great free children’s activities including facepainting and a mobile native animal zoo, while coffee and a free barbecue for lunch will be on offer once the activities are concluded. A number of free National Tree Day t-shirts will also be available on the day, thanks to Taylor Motors through Toyota Australia’s support of the event.
Activities will run from 10:00am until 12.30pm. Participants are to gather at Kennedy Oval (behind the ovals towards the end of Palmer Street) and encouraged to bring their own gloves and tools to plant trees with.
