    Event description

    Join us to restore coastal habitat in Marks Park for National Tree Day. Immerse yourself in nature for the morning with nature craft, bird and whale spotting, yoga and mediation!

    Free coffee or hot drink for participants who remember to bring along their own cup! Some spares will be available, so don't panic if you forget.

    We will be planting small native shrubs and ground covers consistent with the coastal vegetation that provides habitat to small birds like the Superb fairy wren. Please book into one of two time slots to take part so we can manage numbers.
