Seedlings offered for the Wheatbelt

People living in the Wheatbelt are being encouraged to help improve the biodiversity of their backyards.

Natural resource management group Wheatbelt NRN has a selection of native plants available just in time for spring planting.

The plants have been chosen for their flowers and to brighten gardens and also provide homes and food sources for native animals.

The Community Free Tree Days will be held in Beverley, Dalwalinu, Mukinbudin, Southern Cross, Northam, Toodyay and Corrigin in September.

People are encouraged to collect a couple of seedlings, with information sheets to help guide them on where to they can be planted.

In return, Wheatbelt NRM is asking people to fill in a survey, to help the group improve the way it manages the region’s natural resources.

People can simply turn up on the day and the seedlings are free of charge.
