Sunday March 8th, 2009. 10 am - 1 pm. (NSW Time)
Come and be a part of our fun day planting rainforest trees at the Crystal Castle!
We will be planting up to 1,000 trees on the day. It's free and you also get free entry to the Crystal Castle on the day (just mention you have come for the tree planting), All you need to bring is a hat, sunscreen, gloves and suitable footwear. See you on the day.
Today on the Rainforest Walk cicadas trill loudly, Fig Birds feed on the berries from the Native Peach and butterflies drift gracefully through the planting. In May 2006, Rainforest Rescue established the first trees in its Plant a Rainforest Project inviting the community to get hands on. Already, some trees are five and six metres tall. In March 2008, volunteers were again called forth to plant a diverse range of trees, shrubs and understory species to bring the planting tally to an impressive 4,000 since the start of the project. Natural regeneration of some species has occurred and with lots of rain during the past wet season over 7,000 plants are now thriving.
The Crystal Castle is just one of 10 sites on the New South Wales far north coast where Rainforest Rescue is working to re-establish rainforest, restore biodiversity, connect fragmented habitats and sequester CO2.
Last year, in this region through the Plant a Rainforest Project 20,000 rainforest plants were established.
The Rainforest Walk Stage 2 is now open, the path meandering almost 1 km.
