Big Scrub Rainforest Day
What's Big Scrub Rainforest Day about?
The Big Scrub Rainforest Day has inspired and educated thousands of landholders and volunteers to tackle weeds, plant trees and get passionate about rainforests since 1999. Through its innovative, fun program, the event engages the whole community, not just those converted to rainforest restoration and landcare.
Co-founded by Rainforest Rescue with the Big Scrub Rainforest Landcare Group, the Big Scrub Rainforest Day has grown to become Australia’s largest annual landcare education event. People travel from all over southeast Queensland, northern New South Wales and beyond to join the festivities and discover practical ways they can help the environment.
The aim of the event is to provide a forum for education on the Big Scrub Rainforest. It has a particular focus on inspiring and motivating individuals and groups to become active in rainforest conservation and restoration. Additionally the event aims to raise funds to support restoration of the Big Scrub rainforest.
Over the last few years some of Australia’s leading biologists, ecologists and other scientists have provided walks, talks and presentations on flora and fauna and the latest conservation techniques. The food and information stalls, entertainment and kids festival make it a fun day out for all.
