Rainforest Rescue Community Tree Planting Day
Saturday 30 April 2022 – please ensure you arrive by 8am
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.
RR will provide:
First aid kit, healthy snacks, hand sanitiser, gloves & small trowels (locals are welcome to bring their own if they are new or clean), seedlings, pre-dug holes, a great location, and our friendly team.
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.
We’re so looking forward to putting trees back on the land with you! See you in the Daintree!
For the rainforests,
