Big Scrub Rainforest Day

Big Scrub Landcare announces 2019 Big Scrub Rainforest Day program

Dive in to the program and discover the Big Scrub. 

Four jam-packed days have been announced for the 21st annual Big Scrub Rainforest Day from 19-22 September. There are 16 activities in idyllic locations across the Big Scrub landscape so that everyone can learn about the rainforest and celebrate its magnificent biodiversity, with an eye to its restoration and care.

The weekend features guided rainforest walks, nature connection workshops, landholder field days, community tree plantings, science and ecology talks, and fun family activities. Most activities are free, while others will contribute 100% of ticket sales to Big Scrub Landcare.

So far more than two million trees have been used to restore 600 hectares of land across the Big Scrub. Are you ready to help us plant more? Rous County Council in association with Big Scrub Landcare will be planting more than 1,000 trees at the Wilsons River tidal pool on 20 September. Contact to book your place.

The long weekend is designed for exploring, learning about and experiencing the magnificence of the Big Scrub. There will be renowned experts, ecologists and passionate environmentalists lead nine guided walks that will shine a light on the different aspects of the Big Scrub rainforest. Spaces are limited and bookings are essential.

Activities are located across the Big Scrub and beyond, from Lismore to Nightcap National Park to Booyong Nature Reserve to Heritage Park in Mullumbimby.

Bookings essential! Go to the Big Scrub Landcare website for more.
