Restoring rainforests at Lennox
Grab your hat and gardening gloves and head to the top of Lennox Point headland on Friday, June 4, to do your bit for the environment.
The Lennox Head Community Tree Planting Day takes place from 9am to 12pm and local residents and business people are encouraged to take part.
GeoLINK project co-ordinator Catherine Cheyne said they had 2100 square metres to plant out so they need all the help they can get.
"We will plant about 1100 trees comprising 12 different native plant species.”
The project has been an annual event since 2003 and is a combined effort between GeoLINK and Ballina Shire Council.
“It’s very rewarding to see the areas that have been planted out over each consecutive year,” Ms Cheyne said.
“The overall goal is restore the rainforest community that was once present on the headland pre-1800s.”
Anyone who is keen to help out this year can contact Catherine Cheyne at GeoLINK on 02) 6687 7666, or simply show up on the day.
Don’t forget to wear a hat, sunscreen and appropriate closed-in footwear.
