Location


Whiteman Park is hosting our annual 'National Tree Day' public planting activity again in 2021.

Our annual National Tree Day plantings are a great opportunity for the local community to get involved in the revegetation and overall improvement of old pasture lands that remain in the Park, so we'd still love to see everyone and their green thumbs!

This year we are starting a multi-year revegetation site, planting in a bushland buffer zone along Bennett Brook. Bennett Brook is the lifestream of Whiteman Park. Originating as a superficial groundwater aquifer in the Park’s north-west, the Brook flows through Mussel Pool and runs south to join the Swan River at Bassendean. The area we will be planting is just south of Mussel Pool and is important habitat for many animals including the quenda (southern brown bandicoots) and koomal (brush-tailed possums).

Volunteers should wear enclosed shoes and weather appropriate clothing, including hats, long sleeve shirts, long pants and/or a rain jacket). Please bring some gloves if you’d prefer to use them, but we will have hand washing facilities on site.

DIRECTIONS

Park in car park 24 at Mussel Pool West and follow the signs to the planting site (please note the site is a ~300m walk south of the car park in soft sands).
