Last Saturday OFF members and 1st Kyle Bay Sea Scouts (plus parents) assisted the property owner, family and friends in planting 350 native trees and shrubs on a 10 Ha property on the banks of the Wollondilly River near Marulan. The majority of the eucalyptus, acacia and casuarina tubes were grown by Menai Wildflower Group nursery. 🌱

Keep an eye out for further planting events later in the year at Crookwell, Gunning and High Range near Wombeyan Caves. Contact Adrian (0424 478498) if you would like to join one of these fabulous planting events. πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦
