Biloela locals are being encouraged to get their hands dirty for National Tree Day on Sunday.
Two-hundred and fifty trees will be planted along Callide Street and Thangool Road, as part of Planet Ark’s National Tree Day initiative.
This community-driven event aims to rally residents in contributing to the restoration of the Shire’s unique landscapes.
National Plant a Tree Day has grown to become Australia’s largest community tree-planting event since its establishment in 1996.
Council has donated the trees that will be planted on the day, while also providing essential supplies such as water, hats and sunscreen.
Mayor Nev Ferrier says he is looking forward to it.
“Council is really happy to support this initiative.
“It’s a great opportunity to bring the community together and enhance the natural beauty of our town.”
National Tree Day provides an opportunity for individuals to get their hands dirty, connect with nature, and give back to the community.
Volunteers across the country join forces each year to plant seedlings and restore thousands of hectares of our precious Australian landscape.
This event serves as a call to action, inspiring people to take an active role in environmental conservation and make a positive impact on our surroundings.
This year’s event requires no prior registration, welcoming all interested community members to gather at the Biloela Visitor Information Centre at 10.00 am on Sunday, July 30.
Food and drinks will be available at the venue, ensuring participants’ comfort throughout the event.
