Tree planting in River Ave
'Bushcare and WorldCup Soccer' community tree planting day
Sunday 20th June 2010
There was what must have been a unique community event in the park during the world cup soccer period. Friends of Lane Cove National Park and the local Frog Hollow residents group (River Avenue West Chatswood) had a combined gathering with a tree planting in the morning, followed by a sausage sizzle and 'World Cup Soccer' for the kids in the afternoon.
It was the first community event to complement the recent Fullers Bridge to Fairylands Envirotrust grant (see below). It was particularlly good to see so many youngsters helping and enjoying their time in the bush. There were over 200 trees and shrubs planted in an area that had previously been very degraded and which the Park's staff had sandstone capped over the last couple of years.
