Another successful Tree Planting happened this year thanks to our wonderful volunteers.
Special thanks to Jenny from Jane Brook Catchment Group for helping us coordinate the planting and Robyn from Mundaring Nursery who supplied us with the beautiful native species.
This project took our total of plants that we planted to over 10,000 since 2012 and we couldn't have done this without the help from supporters and volunteers.

Our 2018 Clean Up went really with approx. 45kg of Debris removed from Bardon Park and surrounding area. Plus a tyre, wet and muddy bedding, tent, chair, pieces of iron and tin.
A majority of this rubbish was removed from the bank of the Swan River and means that it will no longer pose a risk to marine animals or wildlife.
Items we removed in large numbers that cause concern: fishing line, sinkers, plastic rings, plastic bags, cigarette butts....
Thank you to Tangaroa Blue for enabling us to participate every year.
Thank you too, to our wonderful volunteers: Eunice, Ross, Lou, Lieve, Grant, Josie and Leighton for helping us remove such a large quantity of rubbish in 2 1/2 hours.
If you are interested in volunteering with Tangaroa Blue next weekend, please check out the Marine Debris Project they are doing in collaboration with Clean Up Australia on the 13th and 14th Oct.
We had a great number of volunteers again this year which enabled us to finish the planting in record time - 1 1/2 hours only!!!
Thank you again to Jenny from Jane Brook Catchment Group and her husband Max and all our lovely volunteers who withstood the cold and wet conditions!
We sourced the plants from Robyn from the local Mundaring Garden Centre again and we are confident the plants will go well as they were well watered in on the day of planting and the following week.
We'll be planting again next year - planting area yet to be decided!
