Cooler days and wet weather may encourage many people to stay indoors but for dedicated volunteers across Western Australia, the change in weather means it’s time to start planting. Across the State over coming months, hundreds of volunteers will plant thousands of seedlings in revegetation projects aimed at improving the environment.
Natural Resource Management Western Australia (NRMWA) Chair Jim Sullivan said it was thanks to the efforts of volunteers that revegetation can happen at the scale it does.
“The hours of labour put in by volunteers working to improve our environment is phenomenal,” Mr Sullivan said. “Without that volunteer labour, the task simply wouldn’t get done.”
