Koala Tree Planting 11 July
July 11 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
THIS EVENT IS BOOKED OUT
Help us save the wild koalas of the You Yangs and the Western Plains of Geelong and Melbourne.
We will be planting trees that are locally indigenous to create habitat for wild koalas and all wildlife.
UPDATE due to Coronavirus: This activity may change. If restrictions are still in place our groups will be small (max 10 at any time), transport options are limited to travel in your own car*, and we have created some social distance boundaries on the day. We are no longer providing use of shared binoculars or gardening gloves, and all participants must bring a reusable drinking cup if they want coffee or tea.
Participants will be planting trees in the outdoors. You will be given guidance by a leader, but you will be allocated patches to plant in a small team of 10. Morning tea and lunch will be conducted sitting on steps, seats and on the lawn (weather permitting) at a distance from each other.
We allow 1.5 to 2 hours to plant trees for koalas, which occurs on private properties throughout the region. This property is close to the You Yangs, so there will be a nature walk after planting which may include seeing koalas.
