World Environment Day

Volunteers planting trees

To celebrate World Environment Day, each year Ballina Council partners with GEOLINK Constulting to replant the beautiful rainforest at Lennox Headland. 

In 2018, we had 157 people join us to plant 1000 trees. This was a fantastic outcome and we could not have done it without all our volunteers and school groups. 

Since 2003, GeoLINK and Ballina Shire Council have hosted the annual Lennox Head Community Tree Planting Day to coincide with World Environment Day – the biggest, most globally celebrated day for positive environmental action. 

Now in its 17th year, this popular community event continues its goal of reinstating the Lennox headland back to the way it was in the 1880s and, through the planting of littoral rainforest species, creating a lasting natural legacy for generations to come. The next  World Environment Day Tree Planting day on Lennox headland will be in June 2018. (Date to be decided.)

Not afraid of a challenge? Take positive environmental action by joining us at the top of the headland to plant some trees.

Trees, mulch, water and some tools will be supplied by Ballina Shire Council. The Lennox business community and volunteer groups generously donate a barbecue and refreshments. 

Just wear sun protection, closed in shoes and bring digging tools if you own any.
