Big Scrub Rainforest Day 2021 postponed until February

It’s approaching the time of year when we hold our annual Big Scrub Rainforest Day.

Last year, due to covid, the event was staged online. This year – the event’s 23rd consecutive year – we were planning to deliver a small, multi-site program face to face, between October 14 and 17. But once again covid has interfered with our plans and we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event until February.

Please bear with us while we confirm the exact date. We want our friends and members to know that we’re working to have a program of small, covid-safe events ready to go when the date can be confirmed. We will offer first access to the events to our members. If you’re not a member of Big Scrub Landcare, it’s free to join via this link

Big Scrub Rainforest Day was already due to return to it’s small, multi-site format, rather than our large event at Rocky Creek Dam, in 2021. This format should prove suitable for relaxed covid restrictions, so we’re hopeful the event will be able to go ahead unhindered in February. We’re planning to stage around 25 small, covid-safe events, like nursery workshops, science in the pub, guided walks and tree plantings.
