NAIDOC tree planting event lakeside at Churchill

NAIDOC tree planting

Saturday November 14 saw many families gather for a community tree planting event at Lake Hyland/Mathison Park to mark this year’s NAIDOC event with the theme “Always Was, Always Will Be”.

The plants are part of a wider landscaping effort around the existing Apology Seat and Totems which were installed at the lake two or three years ago.

Some planting with the support of Latrobe Valley Landcare took place a few months back. These shrubs are already growing very well.

The weekends’ feature shrubs and trees of grevillea, correas, acacias and callistemons were kindly donated by Bunnings and our thanks go to Barb Harvey for this.
