With several recent sightings of Glossy Black-Cockatoos, Rob Roy Nature Reserve is proving to be an important location in the ACT for this threatened species. If you would like to do something very practical for the GBC on World Environment Day you could join in planting its favourite food tree, Allocasuarina verticillata, on Tuggeranong Hill, only a cone's throw from Rob Roy. Details below and please RSVP as requested.

What and Why? Help ACT Parks and Conservation Service and Greening Australia plant 2,500 Allocasuarina verticillata in the eastern section of Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve to provide food for Glossy Black-Cockatoos. The Glossy Black-Cockatoo is declared as vulnerable to the threat of extinction in the ACT and depends on the availability of seed from these trees to survive.


When? Sunday 5 June (World Environment Day), 9:30am to 12:30pm followed by lunch


Where? Eastern section of Tuggeranong Hill Nature Reserve. Parking will be off Callister Crescent Theodore. Look for Greening Australia signs


What to bring? Please bring hat, sunscreen, long sleeves, gardening gloves, long pants, sturdy boots, and water bottle. Holes will be pre-dug but there will be some digging still required (mattocks provided)


RSVP essential: Contact Greening Australia, or 6253 3035
