Long Bay Regional Park Planting Day – May 19

Sunday, May 19, 2019, 10am-1pm
Members of the Long Bay College Ecolution group would like to invite you, your family and your friends along to the regional park planting day. Meet at Long Bay Regional Park, Beach Road, Long Bay, Auckland. Once you get to the park, follow the signs to the meeting area. Contact Ms Greta Anderson for further details: ganderson@lbc.school.nz
Why get involved? Because as trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Come and help plant some more!
