Green your neighbourhood with community planting

Published Friday, 25th May 2018

Local residents can play their part in greening the City of Wanneroo with the upcoming winter community planting events.

Trees planted

With more than 4300 groundcovers, shrubs and trees to be planted, residents are encouraged to join the City’s Conservation team and volunteers to help rehabilitate natural areas and improve biodiversity.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said the planting events will take place in Madeley, Two Rocks and Quinns Rocks this year, the latter coinciding with National Tree Day.

“The annual community planting events are a great opportunity to get out and discover more about your local area,” Mayor Roberts said.

“Not only are you contributing towards a greener future, you will meet your neighbours and fellow community members.”
