Koala Tree Planting 15 August
August 15 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm
THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.
Tickets will be rescheduled to later in the year.
Tree planting for koalas on a beautiful property in the Brisbane Ranges just west of the You Yangs.
We will be revegetating a creek on a property that was cleared for farming.
UPDATE due to Coronavirus: This activity may change if restrictions are lifted. If restrictions are still in place our groups will be reduced (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.
From June to August, we plant koala trees. We allow 1.5 to 2 hours for this activity, which occurs on private properties throughout the region. This property is far from the You Yangs, so there will be a nature walk after planting, but we might not see koalas.
Locals: $30 adults, $20 children/student/concession (Children must be accompanied by an adult).
Tourists: $120 *
Meeting place is 9.30am at Anakie General Store. Please be there at least 5 minutes before that, we won’t wait for latecomers and our phones will be switched off.
