Gold Coast Biggest Tree Planting Day is happening again in less than 2 weeks and this time we will be planting 15,000 plants in one day, along one creek, at Country Paradise Parklands in Nerang.

Hosted by Nerang Riverkeepers and proudly supported by the City of Gold Coast and the Gold Coast Catchment Association, everyone is invited to support the biggest tree planting day of the year.

This year we will see more local music, food stalls, sustainable lifestyle options, environmental workshops and education activities. The biggest tree planting day will certainly be a great day out for anyone who wants to make an impact, in the biggest possible way!

Site update: The holes have been dug, plants have been delivered and we are locked in an epic program with free yoga, workshops and live music (see below). 

Let the planting begin by saving the date and register your interest here.

From the team behind the day, see you there!

Jesse Kenny, Naomi Edwards, Mark Tierney and Adam Wardrop

This event is proudly supported by the City of Gold Coast, Regen Australia, Gold Coast Catchment Association, Sid Cramp MP, and Nerang Riverkeepers. 

What else is happening? 

Are you keen to learn more about how to go native to help our local plants and animals flourish and meet like-minded people who are making a difference?
We will be hosting the Gold Coast Landcare Forum on Saturday 8th October at Robina Community Centre.
The one day free forum is open to anyone who is eager to go native for the protection and conservation of Gold Coast’s natural areas and waterways, and discover the vast array of opportunities available to get involved and care for the environment with Landcare.
Keynote speakers will include Griffith University’s Professor Tor Hundloe, who will discuss the transformation of Gold Coast’s environment from wilderness to urban ecosystem and Professor Catherine Pickering, who will talk about how to embrace technology for conservation and environmental protection.
Patrick Brabant, Founder of EnviroWarrior & Ambassador for Naturally GC, at the age of 13, will leave everyone inspired about the future.
Mr Brabant said, “We are all responsible for ensuring it remains sustainable for generations to come. The Gold Coast Landcare Forum is a fantastic way to bring people together and focus on encouraging active involvement in the protection of our precious natural areas and waterways.”
The Gold Coast is rapidly urbanising and more than ever before we need to encourage everyone to plant native plants for habitat. The benefits are endless, from beautifully restored conservation areas for everyone to enjoy, to native wildlife in your backyard.
Whether you’re new to landcare or experienced in bush regeneration, the forum will be an opportunity to connect with like-minded people, share ideas and hear from the experts.

Our small, yet, dedicated working group have pulled together a fantastic program. This is our first major network forum since 2009 and we look forward to seeing you there.
