City ready to plant 18,000 Winter seedlings

City ready to plant 18,000 Winter seedlings

The City of Nedlands has taken delivery of a massive quantity of locally occurring  seedlings ready for planting throughout the City in June and July. The planting will take place with the help of local volunteer groups, the Friends of Allen Park, Hollywood Reserve and Shenton Bushland.

Acting CEO, Ed Herne, says the ongoing revegetation of the City’s bushland reserves is an integral part of an overall on-ground restoration program but the enormity of the task would be a challenge without the assistance of ‘Friends’ groups.

“These volunteer groups have been supporting and participating in the City’s environmental activities for over twenty years and make a significant contribution towards maintaining local reserves and bushland,” Mr Herne said.
