Many hands make light work of planting
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.

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