Bayswater Primary School students planted around 2,500 seedlings at Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary on Friday to celebrate National Tree Day. Provided by the City of Bayswater, the native seedlings will contribute to the ongoing revegetation of the wetland.
Bayswater Mayor Dan Bull said the City was proud to support the school planting day. "It's fantastic to see kids get excited about contributing to the environment from a young age.
"We're particularly passionate about the environment in Bayswater – what better way to honour Council's commitment to greening our City than by supporting our youngest environmental enthusiasts?
"I would like to thank the teachers and staff at Bayswater Primary School for their ongoing interest, support and passion about environmental programs in the City."
The City's Environment team was on hand to provide a lesson on the significance of the Eric Singleton Bird Sanctuary and the importance of the planting carried out by the students.
