Can you bee-lieve it? Our Adopt A Street Tree Program applications are open again for round four, but they close Wednesday 31 July.
Our flowering trees are a favourite for our bee population, which means more pollination possibilities for local crops.
Support your local farmers by registering to adopt a tree today! For all the info, check out www.wdrc.qld.gov.au/living-here/facilities-and-services/parks-and-gardens/adopt-a-street-tree-program/

Some of our favourite community grant programs have undergone some slight improvements, including new names!
'Minor Grants' is now called the 'Community Projects Program', and the 'Sport & Recreation Assistance Program' is now the 'Individual Excellence Program'.
And the best part - our applications are now open year-round. Apply now!
