2024 Annual Community Tree Planting Day
Rainforest Rescue’s 2024 Annual Community Tree Planting Day is scheduled for Saturday 18 May 2024 and you’re invited!
2024 also marks our 25th birthday, and we’re so excited to celebrate with you.
Make sure you don’t miss this planting… we have a feeling it’ll be a record-breaker!
Saturday 18 May 2024 – please ensure you arrive by 8:00 am
We’ll start with the tree planting at NightWings Rainforest Centre (2125 Mossman Daintree Road, Wonga, Qld), then we’ll head over to the Native Nursery (1506 Cape Tribulation Rd, Cow Bay QLD 4873 – the old Cow Bay Airstrip site).
What to bring:
- A water bottle (we will provide a water refill station)
- Sturdy closed-toed boots/shoes
- Sun-safe attire (e.g., hat & sunscreen)
- A willingness to get your hands dirty
- Locals are encouraged to bring ferry cards and camping chairs or picnic rugs.
Please note: As much as we love dogs, they are not permitted at the nursery site. Apologies for any inconvenience.
RR will provide:
- First aid kit
- Healthy snacks for morning tea
- Hand sanitiser
- Gloves and small trowels (locals are welcome to bring their own if they are new or clean)
- Pre-dug holes
- Light lunch at the New Native Nursery
- Two great locations
- Our friendly team
- Overview of the Day
The event will commence at 8:00 am, so we will be finished planting before noon (before it gets too hot).
After a morning of planting trees to restore rainforest and 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 some ferry tickets available but we ask that locals bring their Ferry Cards.
Health and Safety
As always, the health and safety of our staff, supporters, and the communities in which we work are of utmost importance to us.
Please ensure you dress appropriately for the event (e.g., sun-safe clothing, hat, sturdy closed-toed boots/shoes). Don’t forget to bring your water bottle and stay hydrated throughout the day
If you are feeling unwell or have recently been unwell please do not attend the planting. We thank you for considering the health and safety of others
We’re looking forward to putting trees back on the land with you and celebrating our 25th birthday. See you in the Daintree!
For the rainforests,
