MORE than 52,000 native seedlings have been nurtured for the Shire of Mundaring’s 2017 distribution program to the community.

Now in its 28th year, the program is part of the Shire’s commitment to providing habitat for native fauna, as well as plants for residents to create sustainable gardens.

During the program’s lifespan, about one million seedlings and plants have been distributed to residents, ratepayers and community groups for planting in the Shire.

The seedlings are all local native plants and the range of species ensure there is something to suit variations in local conditions, from trees to bird-attracting garden plants.

The tree canopy and understory program catalogue and tips on how to plant seedlings for best success is in the planting guide and expressions of interest in the seedlings close on April 21.

One submission per household.

Volunteers are needed to distribute the seedlings.
