There's never been a better time to plant trees!
Author: Lucy Band
Lions Clubs have supported National Tree Day since the event began in 1995. Over the past 16 years, many clubs have been bitten by the tree planting bug, with numerous clubs running their own Tree Day events and many more providing BBQs and extra pairs of hands at Tree Day events hosted by councils, schools and community groups.
In 2012, the partnership between Lions and Planet Ark's National Tree Day takes on a new significance. With the Lions International Million Trees Planting Campaign now in full swing, there has never been a better time to host a tree planting event. And by registering the event with Planet Ark as a National Tree Day activity, you will not only be contributing to the Million Trees campaign, you will also be taking part in Australia's largest community tree planting and nature care event.
While National Tree Day 2012 will be on Sunday 29th July, you can register a Tree Day event for any date during the year. Planet Ark can support you by promoting your event on the National Tree Day website and providing you with access to step-by-step guides, adaptable posters, site signage and other useful resources.
