Hi my name is Bella and my big question is:
How can young people encourage others to get involved in community tree planting?
Planting trees is important because they improve the environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. Trees and plants also help us feel better; we have a need to be connected to nature and this is called biophilia.
In 2019 Millennium Kids came down to Bunbury for a weekend to help the Ludlow Tuart Forest Restoration Group plant 30,000 tuart seedlings in the Forest. The Tuart Forest is an important area for our native wildlife and is the habitat for many of our endangered animals, like the ring-tailed possum. The Ludlow Tuart Forest Restoration Groups helps to restore and protect the iconic Forest, and the historic Ludlow settlement, for the benefit of future generations, biodiversity, tourism, education and research.
Why not find your nearest community volunteer group and join in on a planting day by bringing your friends and family along to help? Make sure to tell everyone about how important planting trees is for the environment and for future generations.
