Big Scrub Rainforest Day
12 Oct, 2014 from 07:01 AM to 03:01 PM

Big Scrub Rainforest Day is now in its 16th year! Big Scrub Rainforest Day is the largest event in Northern NSW with a focus on the natural environment. In 2014 we’re returning to Rocky Creek Dam and will incorporate the Rous Water Open Day to make a bigger and better event. Join us in a celebration of our rainforests and the natural environment at Rock Creek Dam on Sunday the 12th of October 2014. Over the past 16 years Big Scrub Rainforest Day has grown, thrived and revived and best of all we’ve continued our purpose to educate and engage people in the care and restoration of our rainforests. The Lowland Subtropical Rainforests of Northern NSW are special places. More species of plants and animals are found here that in any other ecosystem in NSW, yet less than 1% of our rainforests remain. Across the region thousands of people are actively involved in restoring our rainforests. Big Scrub Rainforest Day is community spirit, volunteers and a gathering of likeminded people. Established in 1999 and held every year since, it’s provided a focus for community involvement through education in a festival environment of entertainment and fun. As with previous years the 2014 event program will be packed with rainforest walks and talks, workshops and presentations along with the community and business market stalls (including food and coffee) and family activities.
