About the Event
This year we're celebrating National Tree Day early, and planting a commemorative run of Black Myrtle trees in honour of dear baby Myrtle, the deer fawn who tragically passed away earlier this year.
Each year we celebrate National Tree day with a mass planting event. After the devastation to our region through drought, the unprecedented bushfires of 2019/2020, and ongoing flooding, we have created extensive new tree runs and an entire fruit orchard which in future years will provide fruit for the residents of Little Oak. This year, we're planting a stunning run of black myrtle (Diamonds in the Dark) trees. These hardy, deciduous trees will provide shelter from the summer sun for the yards off our new stables, and will also be a memorial for dear little Myrtle the deer fawn (a black fallow deer). Before you've planted your tree, we'll take you on a short tour of the sanctuary (up to 1 hour) where you can meet some of our residents and hear more about our work.
The entry price covers the cost of your tree, the tour and light vegan refreshments. We have a limit of ten trees however you can plant one as a couple, a group or a family. Children under 10 are free, but they must be supervised at all times. If you can't make it on the day, you can still donate to fund a tree and our volunteers will plant it for you.
The sanctuary is located between Bungendore and Braidwood, about an hour from Canberra, Goulburn or Batemans Bay, and 2.5 hours from Sydney.
