I love that - 'be part of something big, by doing something small'! Be part of Australia's largest tree-planting event on Sunday 1 August, sponsored by Sunshine Coast Council and BushCare Sunshine Coast, at the Doonan Creek Environment Reserve in Verrierdale, and help to make a difference!

BushCare Sunshine Coast supports the community to preserve and rehabilitate the natural bushland in the Council's environment reserves. The benefits to being part of National Tree Day are huge - help to make a positive impact on the environment around us; get to meet new people; stay healthy and active; learn new skills and connect with nature.
Invite your family and friends for a day out (or even a part thereof) to Doonan Creek Environment Reserve and plant native trees, shrubs and groundcovers, all with the ultimate goal of helping to create habitat for local wildlife.
Fun activities will be running throughout the day and even if you choose to drop in and participate for only a few hours, you will still get to experience all the fun and feel-good activities. To ensure you don't miss out, this is what is happening at National Tree Day and when -
Tree planting, 9am to 2pm
Welcome to Country, 9am
Create a bush critter using clay and natural seed pods, 9.30am to 2pm
