Help inspire a love of nature

Nature elevates the human spirit. It ignites passion, inspiration, creativity and purpose.  And it’s the driving force behind why a quarter of a million people participate in National Tree Day each year.  There are few places on earth more beautiful and with a more outdoors lifestyle than Australia. Be inspired and become a site coordinator. Schools Tree Day is Friday 28 July and National Tree Day is Sunday 30 July

We’re looking for coordinators who can host public planting events at local parks, land care or regeneration sites, sports fields, Scout Halls, or events for their community at a school or pre-school, place of worship or a workplace.

Coordinators will help connect their communities with thousands of other generous, green-minded individuals around the country to enjoy and protect Australia’s unique natural environment and benefit from positive health and wellbeing outcomes.

Coordinators don’t need to be planting professionals, as Planet Ark will provide information and ideas on how to organise an event

Tree Day engages the community in hands-on, fun, positive environmental action, in places where they live, work and play. It is based on the rationale that we can make a world of difference when we come together for the health and wellbeing of the planet and all its inhabitants.
