Cockburn Cement’s native seedling program has once again proven to be very popular with local schools in the Cockburn area surrounding the Munster Plant.
In its second year of running the program, Cockburn Cement proudly donated over 2,000 local native plants during spring to nine local schools to support local tree planting and gardening initiatives.
“Our native seedling program with local primary schools is one way we can assist in the education of future generations regarding the local environment and the importance of revegetation,” said Dan Gregory, WA Operations Manager, Cockburn Cement.
Cockburn Cement was invited to present its native seedling donation to its year 3 and year 4 “Water Wise Warriors” at the Beeliar Primary School assembly on the 13th November.
According to Beeliar Primary School Principal, Louise O’Donovan, the seedlings donated by Cockburn Cement are greatly appreciated by the students and the staff.
“Native planting initiatives support our sustainability education programs such as our gardening club and science programs. Our “Water Wise Warrior’s lead sustainability across the school and keep our garden thriving.
The seedlings will add to the beautiful bush setting we have at Beeliar Primary School, creating an enriching learning environment,” said Louise.
Cockburn Cement has successfully rehabilitated more than 35 hectares of land previously used for quarries at its site in Munster. Over 50,000 seedlings have been planted across the plant’s operations, significantly reducing fugitive dust and encouraging a vast array of wildlife.
Cockburn Cement provides seedlings to schools and community organisations to support environmental initiatives such as tree planting days. If your school or community group would like support for seedlings for any revegetation projects, please get in touch with us on email@example.com.
