Bring the Buzz Back
A group of enthusiastic locals planted almost one thousand Australian Jelly Bush trees on Sunday in a united effort supported by the Council, community groups and local businesses.
Speaking at the National Tree Day planting near Sunset Dog Park, Beekeeper Bluey the Bee Man said he was gravely concerned about the near non-existent bee population in Mount Isa.
"As a way to bring the buzz back, we are hosting this tree planting," Bluey said.
"These native trees will attract the bees back to the area within three to four years."
