Tree Planting weekend in Capertee Valley

Save the Regent Honeyeater and have a great weekend in the spectacular Capertee Valley!
August 14-15.

Tree planting in the Capertee Valley is here again! The May planting was fantastic, with great weather; a wonderful, flat loamy site by the Capertee River; and over 100 volunteers. Thirty-eight of those were from the Taronga Zoo. There is nothing like a busload of young, enthusiastic volunteers to make sure that 3810 trees get planted, staked and watered in under eight hours.

It’s always a great weekend. You can come for the day (3.5 hours from Sydney) or for the weekend. You can camp, stay in the valley or splurge on a motel in Kandos or Rylstone.

The valley is a magnificent isolated loop road ringed by dramatic sandstone cliffs. It is a magical, inspiring place.
You will meet people of all ages, from all walks of life, who are planting native trees to try and save the endangered Regent Honeyeater.
So it’s for a good cause, and good fun as well.
Spend Saturday planting trees with other volunteers. Have a great home-cooked meal in the local hall at Glen Alice that evening, and go birding on Sunday. This is a great experience, not to be missed. Bring the whole family!
The registration form for the August planting is below. Anyone wishing to register, or if you have any questions, please contact Wendy Fox : southernnsw@birdlife.org.au
