Marrickville Council National Tree Day event

Marrickville Council has a planting site for National Tree Day at ‘Wave Rock’ in Marrickville Golf Course.  Wave Rock is a lovely rock, situated between mangroves, that sweeps down to the Cooks River.  Marrickville Council said on 2nd July 2013 in a comment on this blog that they will be planting 2 Melaleuca styphelioides, 1 Angophora costata, 1 Eucalyptus botryoides & 1 Eucalyptus robusta at the Wave Rock site as part of National Tree Day.

“We will be creating an important link in the river’s biodiversity corridor by planting a diverse range of shrubs, grasses & groundcovers from the sandstone heath & floodplain forest vegetation communities around the sandstone outcrop by the river.”

“Council will provide gloves, hand trowels & some other tools for planting, as well as sunscreen. Drinking water & snacks will also be provided. Please wear appropriate clothing for planting & for the weather conditions on the day.
 Children are welcome & must be under parent or carer’s supervision at all times on the site. The site is accessible for the physically disabled & is relatively flat but the ground is grassy it is uneven.  Planting will go ahead if overcast or showers, but will be postponed if there is a storm.”

The community is invited to join the Marrickville Landcare group & the Mudcrabs in the ongoing management of the site.
