Come and plant some trees

5 November 2019|Community News| Off Comments off on Come and plant some trees|

LOCAL residents are invited to help plant new trees around Prince of Wales Bay as part of a project to restore native vegetation along the foreshore.

With the community’s help, 300 new trees will be planted along the foreshore to stabilise the bank, beautify the area, and improve public access.

This space has been made available through Glenorchy City Council’s extensive weed removal program, which has taken place off Gepp Parade over the past few months.

Prince of Wales Bay has undergone significant changes over the past 80 years with parts of the original foreshore lost to reclaimed land and the development of heavy industry.

Aerial photos from the 1950s show a patch of native vegetation which this planting will go some way to restoring.

The community planting will take place on Sunday 10 November and residents wanting to participate are asked to meet at 10am at the foreshore reserve on Gepp Parade, behind the sports ground.

Bring along a hat for sun protection, gardening gloves, and a water bottle.

For more information, contact Council on phone 6216 6800 or email gccmail@gcc.tas.gov.au.
