ACT Rural Fire Service Supports Greening Australia Planting Day near Williamsdale, NSW

ACT Rural Fire Service members from Guises Creek Brigade had a hard day assisting a bus load of volunteers from Greening Australia who were planting a number of trees on a private property south of Williamsdale, NSW. The G/CRK crews' role was to provide water for the plants and trees.

The views were spectacular and the crews wanted to share them with the rest of you. (TIP: Click on photo to make it much larger.)
