Comment News (Gosnells) - - Street Watch -

More than 4,000 na­tive plants will help im­prove bush­land at Tom Bate­man Re­serve in Thorn­lie when a com­mu­nity plant­ing day is held on This re­gion­ally sig­nif­i­cant bush­land needs our help to flour­ish and, as part of a part­ner­ship be­tween the City and Ar­madale Gos­nells Land­care Group, this event will pro­vide long-term ben­e­fits for the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment. The trees, shrubs and ground cov­ers to be planted will help pro­vide food and habi­tat for wildlife and im­prove soil sta­bil­ity and bio­di­ver­sity. Plant­ing at Tom Bate­man Re­serve also builds on sev­eral years of en­vi­ron­men­tal works, in­clud­ing reveg­e­ta­tion, weed­ing, fenc­ing and rub­bish re­moval. Bring the fam­ily and get in­volved be­tween 9am and noon and don’t for­get to wear weather-ap­pro­pri­ate cloth­ing and footwear, as plant­ing will hap­pen re­gard­less of rain. Please also bring a hat, sun­screen, gloves and wa­ter bot­tle. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 9397 3000 or email pdames@gos­nells.wa.gov.au.
