Last week 40 children from two local schools came to Centennial Park to help plant trees, grasses and plants for National Tree Day.
- Lilly Pilly (Acmena smithii)
- Tussock Grass (Poa labilliardieri)
- Beach Flax Lily (Dianella congesta)
- Native Fuchsia (Correa reflexa)
- Climbing Guinea Flower (Hibbertia scandens)
- Plume Grass (Dichelachne crinita)
- Tick Bush (Kunzea ambigua)
Centennial Parklands staff would like to thank the kids and teachers from the two schools for joining us for this enjoyable day.
As the kids grow, so will their plantings – and we hope the legacy provided will be enjoyed for decades to come.
