In the lead up to National Tree Day, 75 City of Mandurah staff members got their hands dirty on Thursday morning to plant 600 seedlings at Town Beach.
The annual City of Mandurah Staff Tree Planting Day initiative hopes to encourage staff members to get outdoors and into nature as a way of improving their health.
National Tree Day is held every year on July 30, and includes several community tree planting sessions being held across Mandurah during June and July ahead of a main tree planting event.
The next community tree planting day will be held at Island Point, Herron, from 9am to 12pm on June 17.
Participants to the event are encouraged to wear long-sleeved t-shirts, long pants, enclosed shoes, hats and sunglasses.
Gloves, tools, equipment for planting, drinking water, snacks and refreshments will be provided on the day.
Residents from all ages and abilities welcome.
Other planting day locations include Doddies Beach, Seascapes, Avalon Beach, Marlee Reserve, Janis Street, Alder Court Reserve and Tindale Street.
A final National Tree Day community event will be held on July 30 at Maree Reserve, Parklands.
