From 1 to 7 May 2017 we’ll be jointly hosting the 4th annual Canberra Tree Week.
Each year, in partnership with other organisations around Canberra including the National Arboretum, Yarralumla Nursery, the Australian National Botanic Gardens, the Australian National University, the National Capital Authority, Parliament House and Government House, we take the opportunity to appreciate, explore and celebrate the beautiful trees and forests here in the Canberra region.
For one week, we embrace our bush capital’s trees through wonderful events and activities such as the Tree Projects Exhibition, Canberra Tree Climbing Championships and guided walks at the Australian National University and Bendora Arboretum.
Please note that the ranger guided walk of Bendora Arboretum on Thursday 4 May 2017 is fully booked. However, places are still available for the one on Sunday 7 May 2017 at 10am. View booking details here.
Stay tuned for details to get involved with building a forest, happening at Gungahlin Library every day during Tree Week. Follow @LibrariesACT on twitter to get the latest updates.
