Green fund­ing

Weekend Courier - - Opinion -

COM­MU­NITY groups are in­vited to ap­ply for fund­ing to un­der­take tree plant­ing projects as part of the Kwinana Green­ing Fund.

A State Gov­ern­ment con­tri­bu­tion has re­sulted in $95,000 in fund­ing avail­able to the com­mu­nity over three years for Kwinana-based projects.

The first round of fund­ing is now open and closes June 1.

City of Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams en­cour­aged lo­cal groups to ap­ply for the fund­ing.

“More trees equal more shade, lower tem­per­a­tures and a bet­ter nat­u­ral habi­tat for wildlife,” she said.

Groups are in­vited to ap­ply for fund­ing for plant­ing trees in parks, re­serves or nat­u­ral ar­eas.

The funds are also for plant­ing street trees, or preserving or re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing nat­u­ral bush­land.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms are at www.kwinana.wa. gov.au/grants.
