Koala Conservation Day August 22 – Tree Planting!
August 22 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
REGIONAL VICTORIANS ONLY CAN ATTEND.
Help to create koala habitat on the Western Plains of Melbourne.
Let’s plant 800 trees, which will take about 3 hours.
Participants will be planting trees in the outdoors. You will be given guidance by a leader, and you can be allocated a patch to plant only in the company of your own family, friends, or by yourself if you prefer. You must wear your face mask.
Morning tea and lunch will usually be on picnic blankets outdoors. Dress warm.
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 and don’t be late – we do not share the property address.
What to bring? Drinking water, packed lunch & morning tea, reusable drinking mug, gardening gloves, sunscreen and insect repellant. Gumboots are highly recommended. We also recommend a change of dry clothes in case it rains.
