Community tree planting days

The Beaches to Bushland Volunteer Landcare Program provides a platform for the local community to foster a connection with their natural environment, and encourages active community involvement as well as ownership of our natural assets.

The program supports bushcare and landcare groups working in partnership with our Natural Areas Management Unit within City-managed conservation estates.

As part of the program we also support and encourage local schools, universities, TAFE and community groups to host a tree planting day specific to their group, or join an existing scheduled tree planting day.

Please note we do not cater for scheduled tour groups or conferences. Corporate groups can participate by scheduling a session for the group as a team building day, but some charges may apply. Please contact the provider for further details.

Our natural areas team coordinates the event, preparing the planting site and providing the plants, materials, tools and on-ground supervision by qualified bush regenerators.

How can your school or group get involved?

Note the following requirements:

  • bookings are essential and must be made at least six weeks in advance
  • minimum of 30 participants with a maximum of 50 per session (school groups are an exception)
  • participants must wear appropriate clothes, enclosed shoes, gloves, hat, and bring drinking water
  • all sessions go for one to 1.5 hours maximum
  • maximum of one session per group in a one year period
  • eligible planting days are Tuesday to Thursday from April to October (subject to availability and weather conditions).

Please contact our natural areas team on 07 55811 537 or to discuss locations, dates and times available to your group.
