What a fantastic day - over 650 attendees and 4000 trees planted!
For the second year, Frasers Landing hosted the City of Mandurah's National Tree Day at the stunning Frasers Landing Core Conservation area on the Serpentine river foreshore. The weather was one of WA's famous sunny winter days and the community came out in force with over 650 attendees throughout the day!
In partnership with the City of Mandurah, Peel Harvey Catchment Council, ALCOA, Peel Men of the Trees, Rotary Treemission, Natural Areas crew and Toyota, this event achieved a planting of over 4000 trees and all plastic tree guards onsite were replaced with new biodegradable tree guards.Other exciting activities were also happening onsite, including the Rec Centre sports van, environmental stalls, Toyata Hybrid vehicles and food vans.
It was so wonderful to see the whole community come together to preserve, regenerate and appreciate the Frasers Landing Core Conservation Area. It was also a great way for everyone to connect with the environment and each other. To everyone's excitement, Mayor Rhys Williams and Deputy Mayor Caroline Knight also came along to the event!
The day after National Tree Day, Frasers Landing also hosted the Global ALCOA Environmental Managers who participated in planting a further 500 plants with the biodegradable tree guards and afternoon tea. ALCOA kindly sponsored over half of the tree guards for both day's events.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along and got involved - it was a true team effort!
