Today I went to the You Yangs with my Dad and my friend Ebony. We went to plant trees, pull out weeds and look for wild koalas. This was my first ever tree planting day! I was so excited to plant trees.
Ebony and I found really big bushes of it and tried to pull them out. We got most of the big bushes out but there was one really big one which we gave up on.
After we went to find Anzac who is Clancys father. When we went looking for him we could not find him. We were looking forever then Kirby spotted him on a really small branch at the top of the tree. After looking at him through the binoculars we went back to the car and went home.
It was so much fun looking for Anzac, planting trees and pulling out the boneseed weed. It was a lot of fun spending the day with Ebony, my Dad, Janine, Kirby and Mel. I hope to one day take a whole group of my friends to do some tree planting and weed removing- maybe even spot a koala!
If you want to help plant trees around the You Yangs- the tree planting season is now until August. Koala Clancy Foundation have 2,000 trees they want to plant and they do it on the first and third Sunday of each month. Click on the Koala Clancy Logo for information
