We have been having an un-BEE-lieveable time with 60 students from Harrington Park Public School! As part of our new project, Bringing Back the Buzz to the Cumberland Plain Woodland, we piloted new lessons to inspire the next generation of conservationists to consider the role of native flowers and their pollinators in the ecosystem.
After treating their mum to a lovely breakfast in bed, local families helped plant 500 trees in Spring Farm bushland corridor on Mothers’ Day.
“Planting a tree for mum is one of the most beautiful presents a family can give,” says Margot Law, Citizen Science Officer at the National Parks Association of NSW. “It’s a lovely tribute for the strength, support and love of mums and a gift that plays a vital role in restoring the ecosystem.”
