RCWE Tree Planting Lake Claremont August 2017

The Rotary Club of Western Endeavour gets involved with several local community activities and this week it was tree planting with the Friends of Lake Claremont.

On the 13th August 2017, RCWE Members Laurie and Mary, Byron, Rohan, David and Judy joined Geoff and the Friends of Lake Claremont to complete their weekend's planting. Students from Scotch College and Christchurch, with family and friends also helped out and we planted over 1,000 shrubs in 3 hours.

RCWE has been involved with the FOLC over a number of years to revegetate the area around Lake Claremont to bring back bushland to the once golf course. Some of the revegetation from previous years is fairly advanced with many tall shrubs and trees.

The current President of Rotary International, Ian Riseley, has challenged Rotarians to plant one tree by April 2018. The RCWE has far exceeded this quota with the plantings on the 13th August, but also RCWE Members Harry and Betty assisted with planting 6,000 trees over the weekend of the 28, 29 and 30th July 2017. Within the mix were three eucalypts (sargent’s mallet, swamp yate and swamp mallet), a casuarina (Casuarina obesa), callistemon (phoeniceus) and one melaleuca (lateriflora).

Over the last 5 years the RCWE has helped plant with others around 40,000 trees on salt affected land around Quairading and Cunderdin. The success rate of the plantings over the last couple of years has been nearly 100% - an amazing result.
