It began with a suggestion from park ranger Mike Dodkin (still involved 40 years later) that the newly formed Mid North Coast branch of NPA undertake some on-ground conservation work in Crowdy Bay National Park.
After treating their mum to a lovely breakfast in bed, local families helped plant 500 trees in Spring Farm bushland corridor on Mothers’ Day.
“Planting a tree for mum is one of the most beautiful presents a family can give,” says Margot Law, Citizen Science Officer at the National Parks Association of NSW. “It’s a lovely tribute for the strength, support and love of mums and a gift that plays a vital role in restoring the ecosystem.”
