ACF Macnamara in partnership with Westgate Biodiversity are holding a morning planting activity in the beautiful Westgate Park, Port Melbourne.
With Coronavirus restrictions now easing, we can now finally reconnect with local community members, friends and family who share our love for nature!
This is a family event. Westgate Park is a nature reserve. We ask that you please leave your family dog at home for this event.
10:30 am Volunteers meet at the car park (directions below) for an introduction to the planting activity and safety briefing.
