Pollies plant trees together ahead of National Tree Day 2018

Hobsons Bay was greening out over the weekend, after pollies got planting along Kororoit Creek in Altona North, before a free community festival in Williamstown in support of the upcoming World Environment Day 2018 on June 5.

The public plant-a-thon, in support of the upcoming National Tree Day on July 29, was led by Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek, who were joined by Hobsons Bay Councillor Colleen Gates, Mayor Angela Altair and Labor Candidate for Williamstown Melissa Horne.

“It was amazing (and) great to see so many volunteers spending the morning planting native shubs and trees, helping to rejuvenate Kororoit Creek for the wildlife that calls it home,” Ms Horne said.

Over the past fourteen years, volunteers from Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek have planted over 50,000 trees, shrubs and under-story plants along the creek within Hobsons Bay. You can learn more about them at the Friends of Lower Kororoit Creek website.
