Grab your gloves and your gumboots, because the City of Gosnells is seeking local community members to get grubby in the name of restoring and maintaining local bushland.

Bushcare’s Big Day Out is a national day of community participation to restore remnant bushland, encouraging Australians from all walks to life to get involved in learning about and supporting their local environment.

Between 9am and 12pm on Sunday 13 June, community members can take part in the planting of 6,000 native seedlings at Mills Park in Beckenham, before enjoying morning tea together.

“Being involved in restoring our local bushland is incredibly rewarding, and it’s a great way to spend time together with family and friends while helping the environment and our community,” City of Gosnells Mayor David Goode said.

“With hundreds of people helping plant seedlings in previous years, Bushcare’s Big Day Out is always a fun day in the City of Gosnells.”

Participants will need to bring their own gloves, gumboots and water bottle, dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared to get dirty.

The City of Gosnells’ Bushcare’s Big Day Out event is supported by the Armadale Gosnells Landcare Group.
