Plant a tree for climate change
Rainforest Rescue is hosting a free tree planting event on Sunday, March 25 from 10am to 2pm at the Crystal Castle, near Mullumbimy.
There are 3,000 rainforest trees ready to be put into the earth.
Kelvin Davies from Rainforest Rescue said the event was a special opportunity for the community to take part in turning Camphor Laurel forest into a bio-diverse, sub-tropical rainforest.
Well be planting over 100 different species of rainforest trees, which will provide habitat for the many threatened species found in the Byron Bay hinterland, he said. Planting trees also helps to address climate change as each rainforest tree will absorb one tonne of Co2 in its lifetime. We invite everyone to come along on Sunday, plant a tree and be part of the magic.
Colin George from the Fatherhood Project will unveil a plaque at 11am to commemorate the creation of the special Fatherhood Forest as a celebration of fathers and children everywhere.
The Crystal Castle is putting on free entry with light refreshments and live music so you can sing along while you plant a tree.
