What a great day for the environment! Over 40 kids and parents of Huntlee got their hands dirty for our planet, wildlife, water quality, and community altogether.
Altogether along with residents joined the National Tree Day on the 31st of July 2022, Australia's largest tree planting and nature care event.
Tree planting is an effort to assist the rehabilitation of the riparian corridor along Ferry Parade. This in-turn improves the visual amenity and assists with wildlife habitats and furthermore, improves the water quality entering the corridor. We are very proud of being part of a community that acts for the environment by planting trees and smartly using drinking and recycled water. Way to go, Huntlee residents!

According to the National Tree Day organisation, research indicates that 25% of Australia’s threatened plants and 46% of threatened animals reside in urban areas. This means we can have a tangible impact on their conservation by taking action in our local communities. One of the best things you can do to help native flora and fauna is to plant native habitat. Thanks to this initiative, over 26 million trees have been planted in our country, thanks to over 5 million volunteers since 1996.
