Get planting for National Tree Day

Friends of Old Beach Foreshore have been removing boneseed from the foreshore

National Tree Day is on Sunday 30 July, with planting events around that time to be held at Bridgewater, Old Beach and Herdsmans Cove. Planting trees, along with controlling weeds, are great ways you can help manage Brighton’s natural resources.

Friends of Old Beach Foreshore will be getting involved by holding working bees on Saturday 17 June and Sunday 16 July. The group regularly clean up rubbish, remove weeds and replant along the foreshore.

There will also be a weeding event at the Jordan Nature Reserve later in the year. The area on the eastern side of the Jordan River is a refuge for several threatened plants, such as the endangered basalt guinea flower.

The event is a perfect opportunity to learn about some of our most vulnerable plants, and how to help retain our biodiversity. If you’re keen to get involved, contact Mel Fazackerley at mel.fazackerley@derwentcatchment.org.
