Young people of Albury-Wodonga and surrounds are invited to help plant up to 2000 native grasses, shrubs and trees around Gateway Lakes, to provide food, shelter and nesting sites for squirrel gliders, birds, turtles, frogs and other native animals.
Music, eco pop quizzes, dance-offs and lots of prizes – what better way to celebrate youth and biodiversity month than a youth-led ‘Plantathon’ for 12-25 year-olds!
The morning includes:
- Free bus departing from Wodonga Council to the planting site at Lemke Rd, Gateway Lakes
- Free BBQ
RSVP by Tue 26/9/23 to: https://events.humanitix.com/plantathon

The Plantathon is an initiative of the Youth Leading Wodonga project, coordinated by Wodonga Urban Landcare Network, supported by Wodonga Council and the FReeZA and Friends group, jointly funded through the Victorian Government Environmental Volunteering New Growth Project and the Australian Government’s Murray–Darling Healthy Rivers Program.
