The visit to meet City of Gosnells Parks and Environment team last Wednesday provided them with information about job opportunities, plants and caring for the environment.

Mayor Dave Griffiths said the visit furthered aims of the city’s beautification strategy, which focused on the value of quality open space.

‘Educating young people on the need to care for the environment and local parks and reserves is a vital step in beautifying the City of Gosnells,’ he said.

‘Our community has a lot to gain from students who have an interest in working in the parks and environment field ” they are our future planners and caretakers.’

The students met a horticultural apprentice, spoke to senior parks staff about careers and toured recently completed landscaping improvements in Pioneer Park, Gosnells.
