Tondoon Gardens offering trees for Schools National Tree Day
Gladstone Regional Council’s nationally recognised Tondoon Botanic Gardens wants school students to get planting and give back to the environment on Friday, 26 July – Schools National Tree Day.
Gladstone Region Councillor Desley O’Grady said the Gardens was inviting all regional schools to register for the event and receive free trees or shrubs.
“Depending on how much space schools have available, they can choose from a small tree or shrub native to the Port Curtis Region to plant in their grounds,” Councillor O’Grady said.
Schools can register by phoning 4971 4444 or via email email@example.com Regional schools can pick up their native tree/shrub from their local RTC but must register with the Gardens first.
Toyota Australia is again sponsoring National Tree Day and the community event on Sunday, 28 July.
Gladstone’s Bill Robertson Toyota dealership is also supporting Rosella Park State School and Clinton State School as part of the 26 July celebrations.
Olympic Gold medallist, Libby Trickett, will be in town to visit both schools and join with students for their tree planting.
Schools Tree Day is a great way to teach children how important it is to connect with nature and give
back to the environment.
