Tree planting day helps ecosystem
SIMPLY planting a tree can help Bundaberg's environment and ecosystem, according to Councillor Danny Rowleson.
Cr Rowleson said that with the help of schools council planted 2500 native trees at Saltwater Creek yesterday.
He said it was an important way to educate the community and improve the environment.
“National Tree Planting Day is one of the many steps council takes each year as a component of our community environmental education program,” he said.
“Informative guidance for our young people is a most important step to assist our local environment to become more sustainable.”
He said the Saltwater Creek precinct was a vital component of local ecosystems, which would ultimately lead to better water quality for the Burnett River.
“An increased awareness of environmental issues will lead to long-term quality of life outcomes for the broader community and a more sustainable future for the Bundaberg region.”
Many schools were involved in the day, while some planted trees in their own environment.
