What's On

18 May
Samson Park Community Planting Day

Join us Saturday 18 May, 8.45am-12.30pm at Sir Frederick Samson Memorial Park.

This year the City will plant 3000 plants as part of its re-vegetation program, with the support of Friends of Samson Park and Conservation Volunteers Australia.

A range of local native species will be planted to infill an area adjacent to the turfed parkland. The area was previously accessible from the parkland and is now enclosed by bushland fencing and the reintroduction of lower story native species will enhance the biodiversity of the park.

If you would like to get more involved in learning about and conserving the native flora and fauna of the reserve we’d love you to join us.

What to bring

  • closed-in shoes
  • hat
  • water bottle
  • raincoat (in case of rain)
  • favourite gloves if preferred.

We provide

  • gloves
  • trowels
  • plants
  • barbecue lunch.

All ages are welcome! There is no need to register, just turn up and sign the volunteer register on the day.

This activity is supported by the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare (SERCUL) through the community capacity building for ‘Friends of’ groups project coordinated by the South West Group NRM partnership arrangement and funded by the Sidney Myer Foundation.
