Need for community education about trees, says GUST
The Grow Urban Shade Trees group has used National Tree Day to highlight "a strong need for community education about the benefits of trees".
The group claims Central Coast Council has "identified" the need but failed to fund and deliver this education.
"GUST has made repeated requests for Council asap but it has not been prioritised," said group member Ms Jen Wilder.
"While we wait and lobby, we can have conversations with neighbours and friends and help our kids to connect with nature so that they become sensitive to the great many benefits of living with trees."
She said the website coolaustralia.org had lesson plans for all age groups.
"So please take a look and share with your teacher friends."
