RMIT University National Tree Planting Day
RMIT University is excited to announce that we are partnering with the City of Whittlesea for a National Tree Day planting event! Staff, Students and anyone from the local community is welcome. RMIT has a campus in the City, Brunswick and Bundoora and we like to give back to our wider community to show our commitment to upholding sustainability values not only on campus but also within our wider RMIT community. Our planting event is taking place at the Epping North Conservation Reserve, which is located just off Loughton Avenue. We will begin the event with a walk and talk through the reserve to explain the importance of the reserve and the improvements that have been made to it since the City of Whittlesea have taken it on.
