National Tree Day is coordinated by Planet Ark and are special days for all Australians to help out by planting and caring for native trees and shrubs to improve the environment in which they live. National Tree Day started in 1996 and since then more than 3 million people have planted 23 million seedlings!
This year, National Tree Day is on Sunday 30th July 2017. See below for events that are being held in the Cooks River catchment.
