Project update: July 19, 2022
National Tree Day volunteers needed
The beautiful Woodlands Reserve in Andergrove will be the focus of this year’s National Tree Day in Mackay.
Council is calling on volunteers to lend a hand at this year’s event, which will be held on Sunday, July 31, from 8.30am to 12.30pm at Ficus Crescent, Andergrove.
This site has strong community interest, and the tree planting event will help to enhance the natural areas of reserve and will complement the upcoming Woodlands District Park project.
Council is aiming to plant up to 1300 plants at National Tree Day.
Come down and get your hands dirty for a good cause by registering as a volunteer for National Tree Day.
Please wear sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses and bring a water bottle. If you have your own gloves and gardening equipment, please bring them along. A free barbecue will be provided to everyone who participates in this event.
Registrations close at 5pm on Thursday, July 28.
School’s Tree Day will be held at a different location this year. Students will be revegetating the area beside the 2021 School’s Tree Day site on the Bluewater Trail, east of the Ron Camm Bridge.
School’s Tree Day will be held on Friday, July 29, and council is aiming to plant 700 plants as part of this event.
National Tree Day and School’s Tree Day in Mackay is supported by Mackay Regional Council and Mackay Toyota.
