Koala Conservation Day – Tree Planting
July 10 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm
Plant trees for koalas & have fun outdoors!
Enjoy a day of tree planting in the western plains of Victoria, connecting with nature and helping koalas – it’s an incredibly rewarding activity!
After meeting at the meeting point, we will drive in convoy to the nearby planting site for the day. You will be given guidance by our experienced staff, then you can plant in the company of your own family or friends, or follow along with the rest of the group. We aim to plant around 1000 koala trees, which will take at least 3 hours depending on the group size.
After planting for a bit, we’ll take morning tea and lunch breaks (BYO food and water). This will be undercover where possible but will usually be outdoors. We recommend dressing in layers as weather can be unpredictable – we’ve planted through rain, hail, and shine all in one day before!
A lot of the properties that we plant on are large, open fields with no facilities. We recommend using the bathrooms at the meeting point in the morning.
Note: Tree planting is an incredibly rewarding activity but it requires some fitness (ability to walk on uneven terrain, carry equipment, bend over and use hammers). With that said it’s suitable and adaptable for a wide range of ages.
IMPORTANT MEETING POINT INFORMATION: Please be aware that the meeting point for each event is dependant on which site we are planting at that day, which is dependent on our planting speed throughout the season. We will send you an SMS in the leadup to your event with confirmation of where to meet. Please provide your number in the order form when purchasing tickets.
