Join us on Saturday 6 May at Wingham for an exciting and informative morning of guest speakers, tree planting and a FREE BBQ lunch!
A range of guest speakers will cover topics such as koala feed tree identification, what to do if you find an injured koala, and tips and tricks for successful tree planting, followed by a hands-on session to plant trees for the koalas and other wildlife.
The tree planting will be followed by a free BBQ lunch for everyone involved and free trees will be available for you to take home!
Koalas are frequently seen around the Wingham area, and by planting trees we know koalas use, we can create future habitat and wildlife corridors to ensure safe passage for them and other wildlife across the landscape.
This tree planting day is a great opportunity to learn about koalas and tree planting, and then get your hands dirty doing something practical that will assist koala conservation.
The day is suitable for most ages, however, please do take into account it will be held in a paddock and may not be suitable for the very young or those with mobility issues.
