Come and spend a couple days replanting areas that were destroyed in the 2016 Launceston Floods.

Merseylea and Kimberley are beautiful little spots along the Mersey River. Our team will will be planting native trees and understory plants to re-establish native vegetation after the damage of a severe flood.

The going is relatively easy for planting trees and we will be using special planting tools to assist us. Once the plants are established they will provide habitat for native wildlife and help to secure the riverbanks. So come and contribute to restoring a special river in a special part of Tasmania.

No planting experience is required for this project as we have tasks suitable to all levels, so come and lend a hand. Our previous planting projects were rewarding and great fun so don’t miss this new adventure.

We will provide transport from Hobart, departing at 8:00am and returning in the late afternoon the following. Or if you live local you can meet on-site by prior arrangement.  The trip will require an overnight stay in Sheffield at a local camping area.

Bookings are required: click "Book Now" or for more information contact our Hobart office on (03) 6231 1779 or hobart@cva.org.au
