Help out your local koalas by planting the 1500 much needed trees that are waiting to be planted at Birkdale. They will expand a creek corridor that will feed local koalas.

You will be rewarded for your hard work after the planting with a sausage sizzle. You will also be given a a free native plant to take home with you.
