Yass High students plant trees on World Environment Day

Fitting for World Environment Day, on Friday 4th June, 25 grade 9 Geography students from Yass High got their hands dirty and helped a local landholder plant some 270 trees and shrubs. This was organised under Bowning-Bookham Landcare's Let's Try It project. The students learnt about the many benefits of planting native plants, including helping to draw down carbon from the atmosphere, providing habitat for native animals, providing shelter for stock, dealing with salinity, making the landscape more beautiful, and even providing extra income through the sale of foliage to florists!
The Let's Try It Project is funded and supported by NSW Government, South East Local Land Services, Yass Valley Council, and Yass Area Network of Landcare Groups.
