Hollywood Primary Planting Day at Hollywood Reserve

Hollywood Primary Planting Day at Hollywood Reserve

On a chilly but clear winter’s day on Tuesday 2 July 2019, 268 Hollywood Primary School students from Pre-Primary to Year 6 joined the Friends of Hollywood Reserve to plant native seedlings in the local bushland.

Six groups of students visited Hollywood Reserve from 9am until midday, working diligently to plant native shrubs and trees, including watering and staking.

Working alongside the Friends of Hollywood Reserve, City of Nedlands staff, Mayor Max Hipkins and Councillor John Wetherall, the students planted new seedlings to help protect and conserve the reserve while enriching the habitat for native fauna.

For over ten years the school has volunteered the student’s time to assist the friends’ group in planting seedlings at Hollywood Reserve. The students have become skilled at planting after attending the event each year and are excited to see the established seedlings planted in previous years.

The tree planting exercise is an annual event co-ordinated by the Friends of Hollywood Reserve and supported by the City of Nedlands.
