Ten schools have participated in tree planting sessions for National Tree Day this year.
There have been 17 tree planting / revegetation sessions during the cooler weather in July and August, mainly along the Goulburn River in Shepparton and Mooroopna. Notre Dame Year 9 students have done an amazing 6 planting session at Brickworks Park off The Boulevard, Tassicker Reserve and the Australian Botanic Gardens Site. This has been a part of their Community Service Project.

Every tree planted will make a difference for our local natural environment.
