Mt Majura National Tree Day 2016 planting party

Sunday, 31 July 2016 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Join the Friends of Mount Majura (FoMM) to celebrate National Tree Day 2016 with the planting of local trees, shrubs and flowering ground-cover plants.

This will be our fourth and final National Tree Day community planting in the nature park behind (east of) “The Fair”. Planting holes have been dug prior to the event and water delivered so all we need are volunteers to get the seedlings into the ground.

Enjoy warm-up drinks and Tim Tams
