Greener hands starting young

BUDDING environmentalist Annaliese Baird was among the many Coffs Coast kids celebrating Schools' Tree Day yesterday.

Students from around the area planted native trees and shrubs to make their school grounds a little 'greener'.

National Tree Day will be held this Sunday and willing volunteers are being encouraged to go along to one of the many sites across the area to help do their part for the environment.

Last year over 320,000 volunteers planted almost 1.6 million trees at over 3,600 sites around the country and National Tree Day 2007 is set to be an even bigger success.

Anyone wishing to take part in the plantings should wear sturdy shoes and sensible clothing.

The National Tree Day Sites for Sunday, July 29, are: Mackays Road, access off Vera Drive Landcare Site. Emerald Beach, off Ocean View Cresent Landcare Site. Korora Hills Beach Landcare Site Archie Hunter Memorial Park, Nana Glen Landcare Site Coramba Bridge Orara River Care Site Velodrome Site at Toormina Coffs Harbour City Council Hearns Lake Coffs Harbour City Council
