Moreton Bay set to get stuck into National Tree Day

ByJames Brown

Twenty years ago, a tradition began when the first National Tree Day started. On Sunday 26 in the Moreton Bay region, this tradition is set to continue, with the largest community nature care and tree planting event in Australia taking place. Residents of real estate in Burpengary and surrounding areas are already known for their clean, green outlook and their love of outdoor activities, and this could be the ideal event to combine those characteristics. 

The tree planting will take place at three different venues: Sylvia Gibbs Park, Bunya Crossing Reserve and Woorim Foreshore. It will be on from 9-11 am, 9-11:30 am and 8-11 am in those locations, respectively. Although each of them are a mere stone's throw away from Burpengary, those living in real estate in Deception Bay or Morayfield may find Woorim Foreshore the easiest one to get to.

The Moreton Bay Regional Council says the aims of the event are "making a difference to our community, fostering a love of nature and creating positive environmental change". These are goals that are certainly feasible when you consider the scale of the event.  

According to Planet Ark, more than a quarter of a million Australians take part in the event every year. The three locations around the Moreton Bay region are only a few of the 3,000 sites set up by schools, councils, communities and businesses around the country. Since the event began in 1996, more than 21 million trees, grasses and shrubs have been planted across Australia, creating greener, more beautiful neighbourhoods in different states. 

It's events like this that make living in the Moreton Bay region such a treat. Get in touch with the team at Ray White Burpengary to secure your property in the area.
