Volunteers helping out on the day are urged to wear appropriate clothing. A hat with covered shoes, long sleeved shirts and long pants are all recommended. Gloves, tools and all other necessary planting and gardening equipment will be provided on the day, along with drinking water and a BBQ lunch.
If volunteering is not really what you want to do, then gather up the family and head to lake Francis to get involved in some tree planting activities.
All sorts of tree planting activities are planned for the day. Other activities such as face painting for kids, talks from the Australian Wildlife Displays and planting giveaways, will also be happening on the day.
The activity is a fun family day out and perfect for children to learn a little about the importance of the environment. Lake Francis is an important location for National Tree Day because it inhabits many different native bird species. Liverpool City Council is aiming to regenerate the area by increasing biodiversity to provide a better habitat for the native birds.
