Townsville City Council is holding a Tree Planting Day on Magnetic Island this Saturday to provide food and homes for the local koala population!
Mayor Jenny Hill said she was proud to deliver on another promise by doing more Community Tree Planting Days in the Townsville region, starting with Magnetic Island.
“Magnetic Island is a unique location right at our doorstep and we’re doing everything we can to protect our beautiful koalas,” Cr Hill said.
“My team of councilors is committed to ensuring Townsville’s native plant species and wildlife are around for the next generation.”
Volunteers will plant 500 eucalyptus trees in the bushland on Apjohn Street in Horseshoe Bay.
There will also be face painting and a native plant for volunteers to take home on the day.
The Tree Planting Day will run from 10am to 12pm, Saturday June 23 at Apjohn Street, Horseshoe Bay (Behind Horseshoe Bay Sports and Recreational Centre).
