We're looking for volunteers to join us and help plant trees in the Atherton Tablelands from 8-11am on Friday, February 16. Is that you?
The tree planting site at Millaa Millaa.
About the project
The rainforests of the Atherton Tablelands provide habitat for much-loved, iconic, and threatened species including the southern cassowary, Lumholtz’s tree-kangaroo and the golden bowerbird.
We're restoring areas of rainforest affected by historical clearing by planting trees and strategically renewing wildlife corridors.
This planting will take place on a nature refuge that is strategically located between the Malaan National Park and Herberton Range National Park. Besides its strategic corridor value, this project also helps buffer the World Heritage Area. 17,000 trees have already been planted as part of this restoration project, but there are still 3.5 hectares of land to be revegetated within the nature refuge protected area. Planting a further 11,900 rainforest trees will bring the total number of trees planted as part of this project to 28,900.
On the day
On the day, you'll need to bring a hat, sunscreen and water, plus gloves and a trowel if you have them and car-pool if you can! Look for the tree planting signs for directions and take a look at this short video before you RSVP.
We'll also be taking some footage and photos to capture the day's events, and share the good work with our donors. If you don't wish to be photographed, please let us know on the day.
Interested in this event? Please complete the RSVP below and tick "I want to volunteer" so you are properly registered.
We'll get in touch to confirm your place once you have RSVP'd.
