Landcare for LGBTQIA+ Community Planting Day

Form new friendships and connections within the LGBTQIA+ community through a one-day volunteer tree planting activity

Landcare for LGBTQIA+ Community Planting Day - Sunday 22 May

The ACT Government in partnership with Greening Australia and Meridian are hosting a one-day volunteer tree planting activity for the LGBTQIA+ community.

The event will be held at Stony Creek Nature Reserve, Mt Stromlo ACT on Sunday 22 May 2022.

By taking part, you will be helping to protect and conserve endangered box gum woodlands in the ACT by planting up to 1,000 native trees and shrubs on the reserve.

You will also be forming new friendships and connections, enjoying a free lunch and entertainment, and having a lot of fun!

No experience is necessary.

This event is supported by the ACT Government and the National Landcare Program, with funding from the Protecting and Connecting Endangered Box Gum Woodlands in the ACT Project.

Getting there

Free bus transport has been arranged for all registered volunteers from a central location in the Molonglo Valley.

There is no vehicle access to the site. If you are unable to travel on the provided bus service, please contact the ACT Natural Resource Management (NRM) team.

To get to the planting location, you will need to walk 50m uphill through uneven rock surfaces and long grass.

What to wear and bring

You will be provided with the necessary materials, trees and tools for planting.

Please wear weather appropriate clothing, including long pants, a long-sleeved shirt and sturdy boots. We also recommend bringing a hat, water bottle and gardening gloves.

Support staff will be available and provide tree planting safety briefings.
