Popular Stories

MITCHELL Shire Council is hosting a National Tree Day event on Sunday, with the community invited to get involved and help the shire’s natural reserves.

Council supported National Tree Day since 2001, planting more than 94,000 native grasses, shrubs and trees on council land and at schools.

Two events are planned for Seymour Resource Recovery Centre to support council’s goals.

A tour of the new recovery centre will take place from 9.30am to 10am, followed by planting around the centre’s dam to improve water quality and build habitats from 10am to 12pm.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Fiona Stevens said National Tree Day was significant for Mitchell Shire. “We invite our community to take part in the planting day. Every hand that helps plant a tree contributes to the richness of our local environment,” she said.

Seymour Resource Recovery Centre is at 470 Seymour-Tooborac Road, Hilldene, and people taking part are asked to bring suitable clothing, footwear and a water bottle.
