Join us for a community tree planting on September 16! Help our bushland and wildlife to survive and thrive!
This event, which is being supported by Gympie and District Landcare, the Mary River Catchment Coordinating Committee (MRCCC) and Land for Wildlife will commence at 8.30 am at Nils Buchanan (Messmate Park), Priddy Road, Kia Ora. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Learn how to identify weeds, native species and methods of weed control. Join regular volunteers in carrying out some weed control in the park. After morning tea, take part in tree planting along Tinana Creek, creating additional habitat and corridors for our koalas and other wildlife.
The area around Priddy Road, Kia Ora is a significant koala habitat and they are often seen crossing Tin Can Bay Road. Unfortunately, they are also very vulnerable to vehicle strikes on this busy stretch of road. Presently, koala breeding season is in progress and so we urge all drivers to slow down and take care wherever koala road signs are seen.
If attending, don’t forget your water bottle and, for safety, wear closed shoes and sun protection.
Following the planting, join other participants for lunch at the Silky Oak Tea Gardens. The normal menu will apply and everyone will pay for his/her own lunch.
