The City has been awarded an Australian Government 20 Million Trees Program grant to further enhance and expand koala habitat at Schuster Park, Tallebudgera.

The 20 Million Trees Program aims to plant 20 million trees throughout Australia by 2020, to re-establish green corridors and urban forests.

The project will commence early in 2018 and aims to increase, restore and connect koala habitat at the park through the planting of 20,000 koala food and habitat trees, and assist in restoration to control threats from invasive weeds.

There will be opportunities for the community to get involved with tree planting through the NaturallyGC program. Keep an eye out for upcoming tree planting days.
