Planting for reserve’s future

Published on Monday 17 September, 2018


Do your bit to revitalise the popular Tom Bateman Wetlands, by taking part in a community planting day on Saturday 29 September.

City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said Tom Bateman Community Planting Day would help to preserve the wetlands for future generations.

“Remnant wetland and bush reserves are well used and enjoyed by our community, particularly in built-up areas like Thornlie,” he said.

“Tom Bateman Reserve is highly valued and much loved by our local residents, so it’s important we do our best to support biodiversity and reduce the impact of people on the reserve so that it continues to thrive for future generations.

“Joining in a planting day such as this can also be a great way to learn more about our local environment, meet like-minded people and get involved in our community in a positive way.”

Anyone interested can head down to the reserve between 9am and noon on the day. Participants are asked to bring their own gloves, hat, water bottle and sensible footwear such as gumboots.
