Rainforest Rescue’s Annual Community Tree Planting Day is scheduled for Saturday 30 April 2022, and you’re invited!
When: Saturday 30 April 2022 – please ensure you arrive by 8:00 am
Where: NightWings Rainforest Centre (2125 Mossman Daintree Road, Wonga, Qld)
What to bring: Gardening gloves (new or clean to ensure no cross-contamination), a water bottle (we will provide a water refill station), sturdy closed-toed boots/shoes, sun-safe attire (e.g., hat & sunscreen), face mask (if you wish to wear one) and a willingness to get your hands dirty. Locals are encouraged to bring ferry cards & camping chairs.

Overview of the Day
The event will commence at 8:00 am, so we will be finished before noon – before it gets too hot.
After a morning of planting trees to restore rainforest & connectivity, you’re invited to join us as we convoy to the site of our New Native Nursery for a light lunch. We will have ferry tickets available (but we ask that locals bring their Ferry Cards).
Health & Safety
As always, the health & safety of our staff, supporters & the communities in which we work are of utmost importance to us. We ask that all attendees register for a free ticket via Humanitix.
Please ensure you dress appropriately for the event (e.g., sun-safe clothing, hat, sturdy closed-toed boots/shoes) & stay hydrated throughout the day.
If you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 within 14 days of the planting, please do not attend the planting. We thank you for considering others and doing the right thing.
