The North Central Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is organising a special Fathers Day tree planting event on the Campaspe River at Kyneton.
North Central CMA Project Manager Angela Gladman said the event is part of the revegetation of an important stretch of river through town and is part of the Victorian Governments $222 million investment over the next four years to improve the health of waterways and catchments.
‘‘The Campaspe River upstream of Mollison Street was cleared of willows, blackberry and gorse last summer as part of the Caring for the Campaspe project,” she said.
‘‘This work builds upon the long-term dedication of the local Campaspe River and Land Management Working Group who we are partnering with to hold a community tree planting on Father's Day.”
‘‘Bring your jackets and beanies, bring your gloves and, most importantly, bring your dad. You can have breakfast on us and be finished in time for Fathers Day lunch.”
The event will be held on Fathers Day, September 3, from 9tham to 11tham. Come along and enjoy a free BBQ breakfast and coffee and plant a tree or three.
‘‘You can also find out more about the work of the North Central CMA along the Campaspe River,” Ms Gladman said.
The site can be accessed from Campaspe Drive, off Mollison Street in Kyneton.”
