The Greenly Beach Tree Planting day is back for its 5th year running with locals invited to come along and help plant trees along the Lower Eyre Peninsula coastline.

The tree planting day is an initiative of the Lower Eyre Coastcare and Lake Wangry Primary school that aims to help revegetate native plants along Greenly Beach.

Students and teachers from the Lake Wangary Primary school have been working to grow a variety of native seedling that are set to be planted on Sunday June 20th.

Locals can join the planting day as they please between 10am and 4pm with a BBQ fundraiser to be held on the day, raising money for the primary school.

Event organizer Kerryn Mcewan says anyone who hasn’t been out there, it’s time to tick it off your to do list and get out there.

“The numbers have been steadily growing and we have had up to 150, last year obviously was a little down we had about 100, but I'm expecting numbers to be well up on that we've got a lot more things planned.

“We've got a BBQ lunch fundraiser by Lake Wangary School and we've got our nature art project in the big marquee so there's a lot of other stuff going on as well. 

“It's a rarity to have an environmental event like this now becoming a regular annual event” said Kerryn.
