Three Taroona Tree-Plantings

The Taroona Environment Network pulled together three fantastic planting days on a bike track embankment, a gully and the coast - and they had a blast while doing so. 

The Taroona Environment Network pulled together a whopping three plantings mitigating erosion impacts around Taroona.  They were joined by the Student Leadership Council on the pump track, and the young 'Climate Watch' group on the coastal planting day.   

At the coastal planting, 13 girls from Taroona High School's 'Climate Watch' Group got together to plant pigface, coastal wattles, coastal tussocks, poa grasses and more to combat coastal and tunnel erosion in the area. 

The group consisted of year 7 and 8s with tonnes of enthusiasm on the day and an eagerness to do a lot more environment and restoration work in the future. 

The plantings were on tough, steep and eroded banks in Taroona - thank you to all the hardworkers that braved the slopes! 

Thanks to the Taroona Environment Network and especially Fiona Rice for championing these planting events, to the incredible young leaders from Climate Watch, the Student Leadership Council and to 15 Trees for sponsoring the plants.
