National Tree Day is proudly sponsored by Toyota Australia (since 1999) and was co-founded in 1996 by Planet Ark and Olivia Newton-John.

Grown to be Australia's largest community tree-planting and nature protection event, all Australians are asked to help plant one million new native trees and shrubs across the country. It's a call for all Australians to come together, venture outdoors, get to know your community and give back to the community.

There are many ways to get involved, and that's exactly what First Friends of Dandenong Creek are doing. Founded in 1999 and working with various organisations like the Council and more, their overall aim is to return the section of the Dandenong Creek to its original condition as far as possible and hopefully one day, see the return of the platypus.

Your help is needed on Sunday 28 July 2019 from 11am to 1.30pm at Abbey Walk, Vermont; to help plant 4000 Indigenous plants in an area just west of the confluence of Dandenong and Heatherdale Creeks (northern side of Dandenong Creek) in Vermont. Revegetating the area will help to provide habitat for birds and animals.

A FREE BBQ is provided on the day. Please REGISTER TO VOLUNTEER and park near the Information Board at Abbey Walk on the day. It's just a short stroll up the bike path bordering the creek to the planting area. Please bring your own gloves and wear appropriate sturdy shoes for this event. It's suitable for all ages as the area where the planting takes place is very flat.
