Planet Ark Tree Planting

On Tuesday 22nd of June 2021 Nyirrunggulung-Rise planted trees with the help of Planet Ark and the local community.

We received a 5k grant to undertake tree planting activities in Region 33. Thanks to Planet Ark for funding the Trees and help on the Day.

A local supplier, Territory Native Plants supplied the trees. Tim Moore from Territory Native Plants gave us great advice and helped us pick all our trees. Thanks so much Tim for all your help with this project.

So happy to be planting more trees
