$10m, 500 NSW schools and 100,000 trees

The Minister for the Environment, the Hon Robyn Parker announced that the Western Sydney Parklands Trust will be expanding its immensely popular pilot, ’100 schools program’.

Over the next four years, the 500 schools plantings program will see 20 thousand school children plant 100 thousand trees in the Western Sydney Parklands.

Since the program began, 4000 school children from 75 schools in the western Sydney region have planted 15,000 native trees in the parklands. “By the end of the year we anticipate 5000 western Sydney schoolchildren from 100 schools will have planted 20,000 native trees and shrubs, which is a fantastic outcome for the western Sydney region,” she said. Western Sydney Parklands Trust director Suellen Fitzgerald said the school program was an important aspect of the trust’s work with the community, as the parklands played a pivotal role connecting western Sydney residents with the natural environment.

  1. It’s time to teach our young kids the value of the environment through such activities! Hoping that there would be more of this kind of activity to that the young generation will keep on preserving our world!
