Shire of Esperance National Tree Day Tree Day Site Details

Shire of Esperance National Tree Day

Revegetation activities have been underway at Lake Monjingup Reserve for over a decade, and this year the Shire of Esperance plans to plant an additional 1250 seedlings native to the area to contribute to the return of native trees, shrubs and sedges to this recreational area. This reserve is located in close proximity to Lake Monjingup, which is an excellent bird-watching site, and the surrounding swampland and banksia woodland vegetation provides habitat for local fauna and flora.
