Dig deep for National Tree Day

CENTRAL Highlands Regional Council, in conjunction with Planet Ark and Toyota, is calling on individuals, school teachers and members of the community to participate in National Tree Day on Sunday, July 31.

We encourage anyone who wants to make a difference and get involved in a worthwhile community activity to come along to Rifle Range Rd, opposite the Riverview Estate, at 8.30am on Sunday. Following the planting, Toyota will be hosting a barbecue.

There is not a more rewarding experience in nature than to plant trees and wait for the first leaves to emerge.

Celebrating its 16th year this year, National Tree Day has seen the planting of more that 15 million native trees and shrubs over the years.

Research commissioned by Toyota and Planet Ark shows in just one generation, 73% of Aussie parents agreed they played more outside compared to only 13% of their children.
