Mayor Khal Asfour said the Spring Native Plant Giveaway would be the first in a series of environment-themed activities.
“Becoming a greener council means not only making improvements to man-made elements of CBCity, but also appreciating the natural elements that enrich our lives every day,” he said.
“It’s important we pay attention to our environment and learn about the flora, fauna and natural resources around us.
“I encourage all residents to look at what’s on offer during Biodiversity Month and get out and experience local nature.”
