Sunshine Coast residents and families looking to get outdoors and enjoy the warmer weather are invited to join the free fun and festivities at two local events celebrating Australia’s biggest tree planting event. 
Sunshine Coast Council are supporting Planet Ark’s National Tree Day this Sunday July 29 with tree planting events taking place in Coolum Beach and Pelican Waters. 
Over the last 22 years National Tree Day has resulted in more than 24 million trees being planted and Planet Ark is aiming to add another million trees to the nation-wide tally this year. 
Sunshine Coast Council event organisers are hoping to collectively plant 4500 trees at the two sites on Sunday. In addition to tree planting, each site offers a range of extra activities including free BBQs, face painting and even live music so there’s something for everyone to come and enjoy.
The local events will be supported by Coolum & North Shore Coast Care, Coolum Lions Club, Caloundra Lions Club and Caloundra Rotary Club.
Gloves, plants and equipment for planting will be provided for all registered participants. Full event details and registration information is available by visiting council’s events website.
