Many hands make light work of plant­ing

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Near You -

KENS­ING­TON Bush­land ben­e­fited from a joint tree-plant­ing ex­er­cise this month in­volv­ing Wes­ley Col­lege Abo­rig­i­nal Pro­gram stu­dents, the Friends of Kens­ing­ton Bush­land and Town of Vic­to­ria Park Nat­u­ral Ar­eas Team.

About 35 vol­un­teers planted lo­cal ground­cov­ers, kan­ga­roo paws and shrubs, fol­lowed by a tour of the site with the Town’s Nat­u­ral Ar­eas team leader Stephen Szyd­lowski.

The walk high­lighted the many bush­land restora­tion pro­jects that the Town has com­pleted over the years, and was a re­ward­ing way to ex­pe­ri­ence the land­scape and view lo­cal wild­flow­ers.

The Friends of Kens­ing­ton Bush­land was formed in 2000 to raise public aware­ness and pre­serve and pro­tect the in­tegrity of the valu­able rem­nant bush­land lo­cated at Etwell and Kent streets in Kens­ing­ton in the Town of Vic­to­ria Park.

To sup­port the Friends of Kens­ing­ton Bush­land, con­tact Moya Fisher on 0403 277 341.

Jack Orr, Michael Spratt, Chayse Clarke and Ty­ros Han­d­ley lend a hand with the tree-plant­ing.
