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.
