Dirt girls and boys grow on trees

ORARA Valley kids had lots of fun getting down in the dirt on Planet Ark National Tree Planting Day.

Students from Country Cubs Preschool and Coramba Public School joined community members at Coramba Heritage Park.

Country Cubs director, Cheryll Kooyman, said the little ones had a ball.

"The tree planting day assists Country Cubs meet sustainability practices within our educational program," she said.

"It proved to be a great morning for all involved and was a fantastic opportunity to do something for our local environment and community."

National Tree Day is designed to inspire, educate and recruit Australian to actively care for our unique land and create future generations of committed environmental custodians.

In the past year, participants have planted more than one million native trees, shrubs and grasses at almost 3000 events.
