Hug-a-Tree Day on National Tree Day, Sunday July 29

On Sunday, 29 July 2012 , between 10.00am and 12.00 pm

Come and hug a tree in a vital part of the Wolli Creek Regional Park. Join the Wolli Creek Preservation Society and enjoy the great bushland of the Park’s Western Gateway while we can. This area is threatened with destruction for the M5E tunnel duplication and test drilling could begin at any time. We know that retention of existing bushland is even more important than planting new trees, so come along and show your support for these substantial trees.

Bush restoration activity here over the past six years has been very successful. An easy ten-minute walk with a guide will show you the changes brought about and the quality of the bushland. Join us afterwards for coffee, cake and a chat and maybe join in the campaign to preserve this two-hectare stretch. You can also volunteer to contribute later to on-going bush restoration activities throughout the valley.

Please wear clothing appropriate for a ten-minute walk in bushland (covered shoes, long sleeved shirt and long pants recommended). Join us afterwards for tea, cake and chat about the threat to the area.

Directions: Meet at the junction of Bexley Rd and the footpath leading up to Johnston St; about 3 minute walk from Bexley North station
