Holding Tight – Linking Springbrook and Lamington National Park

September 10, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am

Tree planting to continue the Gold Coast Biggest Tree Planting Day efforts and help link Springbrook NP with Lamington NP

About this event

The Numinbah Valley Environmental Education Centre P&C (NVEEC P&C) is excited to continue its landscape scale restoration project “Numinbah-Holding Tight”, which aims to improve the resilience of species and ecosystems in the Numinbah Valley, and surrounding area, by creating a green corridor linking Springbrook and Lamington National Park.

This project was initially started in August 2019, at the Seqwater/Watergum- Gold Coast Biggest Tree Planting Day, where 15,000 native tube stock were planted by the community on old dairy pasture in the Numinbah Valley.

In Sept 2020, NVEEC P&C became involved through funding from Landcare Australia, where this volunteer group commenced monthly field days to encourage on-going community participation in this important project.

Today, NVEEC P&C with the help from community volunteers and high school students, have since added a further 12,200 native tube stock to the project and we are looking to grow this number even further in 2023 at our new planting site!

If you’re looking to get your hands dirty, meet others and contribute in a positive way to the local environment the NVEEC P&C field days are the perfect opportunity to volunteer for a couple of hours every quarter in 2023. Afterwards, everyone is welcome to stay and enjoy a cuppa which includes our famous morning tea!

Children are welcome to attend, they must be supervised by an adult at all times to ensure their safety and quality of work is maintained e.g. plants correctly planted and watered as per instructions.

Please be prepared for each field day by bringing the following:

• Appropriate clothing for working in the bush (long pants and sleeves recommended)

• Hat

• Full water bottle

• Enclosed shoes

• Positive attitude!
