“Invest in the future of Pottsville’s Koalas” by helping plant another 300 koala food and habitat trees at the Pottsville Wetland. This planting will build on our past habitat creation at this important koala site. If you have participated in plantings before, it will also be a great opportunity to see how the trees we have planted are growing into a forest!
To get to the planting site:
Drive south along Overall Drive at Pottsville Beach until you reach the roundabout at Kellehers Road. Turn right at the roundabout. Drive along Kellehers Road – you will reach an open gate and dirt road. Drive along the dirt road to the planting site. The road is ok for 2WD vehicles but does have potholes. There should be enough parking at the planting site but if you would like to park at the end of the bitumen road and carpool – that is also an option. If you park here, it will take you about 5-10mins to walk to the planting site but it is a nice walk.
What to wear/bring: Sunsafe clothes (long sleeved shirt and hat), gloves, water
What will be provided: All the holes for the trees will be pre-dug, and water, trees and weed mats provided for us to install. Spare gloves, extra water and a morning tea will also be provided.
