Planet Ark is celebrating 20 years of planting trees and urging Australians to volunteer as a site coordinator for National Tree Day on Sunday 26 July and Schools Tree Day on Friday 24 July.
We're looking for coordinators from councils, schools, national parks, Landcare, Bushcare, environmental and nature care organisations, community groups, businesses, faith and sporting groups to organise a tree planting or nature-care event in their local area.
By taking part in National Tree Day, you'll be contributing to Australia's largest community tree planting and nature-care event and joining thousands of individuals in making a difference, connecting people with nature, beautifying neighbourhoods and inspiring positive environmental change.
Coordinators needn't be planting or gardening professionals. Planet Ark provides loads of support, how-to-do-it advice, guides, examples and tips, as well as collateral to help promote your event.
Go on… dig in and register to become a site coordinator today.
