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 remote guidance by a leader, but you will be allocated patches to plant only in the company of your own family, or by yourself. Morning tea and lunch will be conducted sitting on logs 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. If the property is far from the You Yangs, there might not be a koala walk on that day, but there will be a nature walk.
