Each year, volunteers plant around a million seedlings in Australia’s landscape to help local native plants & animals flourish.

This year, our 1st 100 participants will receive a free lunch voucher to enjoy delicious southern flavours of the ‘NOLA Poorboy’ pop up food stall. A range of snacks, good coffee and refreshing drinks will also be available for purchase in a cosy space.

Our Habitat House will provide opportunities to:
• Get up close and personal to Australian Wildlife with Mark Cairns from ‘Endangered Species Recovery’.
• ‘Waterwatch’ will be conducting aquatic discovery sessions throughout the day for small people (& big people).
• Habitat & Native Plants will be on display with discounted plants available for purchase. Funds raised will be donated to support our local ‘Wildlife Rescuers’.
• Win a prize in the “Name that habitat quiz!” by correctly identifying where some animal habitat is on a poster of our indigenous flora and fauna.

The Hunters Road planting project is key to improving connectivity between the Quarry Hills Bushland Park and Granite Hills. By connecting native vegetation corridors, we improve habitat species such as Sugar Gliders and Kangaroos.

Come and celebrate this great event to make a difference for the City of Whittlesea and our native wildlife!
