NATIONAL TREE DAY – Koala Food Tree Planting Day – Merricks Beach

July 31, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

koala tree planting

SUNDAY 31st JULY is NATIONAL TREE DAY and we’d love you to come and spend the morning with us to plant 100s of koala food trees and other local trees and shrubs to increase koala habitat in the beautiful Mornington Peninsula town of Merricks.

Habitat loss is the main reason for the decline of koalas and all our wildlife in general, so let’s do something about it!

This is a great opportunity to learn about our environment and local wildlife, including koalas, while helping us to increase available habitat.

Important Information: Please wear long pants and closed shoes as we will be walking through bush and or grassy areas. Bring your own hat, gardening gloves, water and snacks. We will provide all tools and hand sanitiser.

Please follow current state government COVID restrictions.

We are planting on private property at Naraman Farm, 17 Merricks Beach Road , Merricks Beach, You will see our big teardrop flag near the entrance to the property. Please drive in slowly and follow instructions for parking.
