Part of Landcare Tasmania's 25th Anniversary Statewide Community Outreach Event series - run by our members, volunteers, and staff.
This event is hosted by Kingborough council, supported by Landcare Tasmania members, volunteers and staff.
The whole community is invited along!
Join us for a rewarding day creating habitat for the Forty-spotted Pardalote and other birds and animals. It's family friendly, tools are provided, and the Lions Club of Kingborough will be firing up the BBQ.
We will be joined by local Landcare groups, schools, Scouts, and Guides. Everyone in the community is invited, so please grab a friend and RSVP to Kingborough Council at the phone number below, or Register on the National Tree Day event listing here: https://treeday.planetark.org/site/10021720
Kingborough Council has hosted a National Tree Day site for over 10 years.
Over the years they have evolved the event and partnered with several organisations. One of the best partnerships is with the local Guides and Scouts. Each member of the public who comes along are given a planting demonstration by one of these dedicated young people. Planters are shown how to plant and where things are on the site, given a safety brief and encouraged to stay for lunch. The scouts and guides can count this to their environment and community badges. The Lions Club of Kingborough also bring a team each year to set up and cook the BBQ.
At this year’s event they are also helping Landcare Tasmania to celebrate their 25th anniversary.
Kingborough Council and Landcare Tasmania signed the first Memorandum of Understanding in Tasmania between Landcare and local government and they are proud to support our local Landcare groups. We have several groups coming on the day and a big cake to cut and share with everyone. There is even a lucky door prize donated by Landcare Tasmania. We will also have a tour through a local reserve by the local group in the afternoon.
The site is home to the critically endangered Forty-spotted Pardalote, a small bird with a total population of just 1500. The planting will expand the area of the colony and also contribute to improved water quality, amenity and a wildlife corridor.
