To celebrate World Environment Day, we will be hosting a planting event at the beautiful Scottsdale Reserve managed by Bush Heritage Australia on Sunday, 3 June.

The native trees and shrubs will be planted at the scenic Bredbo property as part of an ongoing project to restore 300ha of woodland to provide vital habitat for native birds and animals.


Sunday, 3 June 2018 – 10.00am – 1.00pm, followed by a BBQ.

What to expect?

Pre-prepared planting holes, beautiful views and a free BBQ. Please note that the site has uneven terrain and will involve some walking between planting areas.
