A Katanning park is set to receive a green glow-up when National Tree Day comes to the Great Southern on Saturday. Katanning Landcare is calling on the public to help plant nearly 900 native trees as part of the Drain to Living Streams project which aims to transform the town creek into a wildlife sanctuary. Drain to Living Streams began in 2011 to convert the town’s concrete drain into a place for community and wildlife to connect. The increased vegetation around the creek will encourage water birds and snake-necked turtles to inhabit the creek and use the banks for breeding. The plants, which feature melaleucas and acacias, were purchased from the Katanning Environmental Nursery with funding from the state’s Natural Resource Management program and the shire. The two-hour event starts at 10am at Thompson’s Park and will be followed by a barbecue lunch for all volunteers.
