Cockburn Cement’s Munster plant is once again providing native seedlings to local schools and community groups for regeneration and beautification projects though its Native Seedling Program.
The variety of seedlings available through Cockburn cement’s program include trees, shrubs and ground cover plants native to the local area.
In its third year, Cockburn Cement has previously donated over 7000 native plants to local schools and community groups in the Cockburn area to support local tree planting and beautification initiatives.
The Cockburn Cement seedling program is one of the organisation’s ongoing environment and community relations programs providing community investment in the area in which it operates.
“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 to protect and nurture local native flora and fauna,” said Colin Powers, WA Operations Manager.
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 encouraging a vast array of wildlife.
