National Tree Day

After the bad news concerning Castle Cove bushland (see below), it was lovely to see the tree-loving community out and about on a sparklingly sunny winter’s day.  Our wonderful volunteers (Heidi Key, Christina Pender, Diana and John Pryde, Kristina Dodds, Gay Spies and Geoff Osborne) ran a well-visited WEPA stall, selling WEPA-branded greeting cards, giving away wildlife ‘postcards’ and collecting signatures on our recent petition to Council.

The petition, which we thought was particularly apt to launch on National Tree Day, is to encourage Council to use all the powers for evidence gathering and prosecution that are available to it under existing environmental legislation to track down the person or persons who recently destroyed over 120 trees – many mature – in H.D.Robb Reserve.  This is the third attack on H.D.Robb Reserve along Willowie Road in Castle Cove.  You can find out more and download our petition to share with friends here.

If you missed our stall this time, we will be at the wonderful Taste of Naremburn fair day on September 17 – come and say hello!
