Koala Conservation Day August 15 – Tree Planting!
August 15 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
REGIONAL VICTORIAN PARTICIPANTS ONLY
Help to create koala habitat near Little River, north of Geelong.
We will be planting up to 1000 koala trees this day.
Due to current COVID restrictions in Victoria, only people living in regional Victoria can participate.
Participants will be planting trees in the outdoors. You will be given guidance by a leader, and allocated patches to plant – you can choose to do this only in the company of your own family if you prefer. Morning tea and lunch will be conducted sitting on logs at a distance from each other.
Note: Tree planting is a rewarding activity that requires some fitness, ability to walk on uneven terrain, carry equipment, bend over and use hammers. Participants should be willing to work in all weather conditions.
The meeting place for the day will be confirmed via email closer to the date as planting is conducted in different locations. All properties are a 45min-1h drive from Melbourne CBD. As planting occurs on private properties, please meet us at the designated meeting point as we do not share the property’s address.
What should I bring? Drinking water, packed lunch & morning tea, reusable drinking mug, gardening gloves, sunscreen and insect repellant. Gumboots are highly recommended during Tree Planting Days. We also recommend a change of dry clothes in case it rains.
