Hi all

I'm excited to report that the FOSS4G SotM Oceania 2019 tree planting
program has been scheduled for 15 August 2020. Here is the Parks Victoria
event information:


If you want to attend and plant trees, great! You need to register as a
volunteer with Parks Victoria using the ‘Register with ParkConnect’ button
on the link above.

We hope to run some free, volunteer-run mapping events on/around the day.
Full details TBA, some ideas are:
- conduct a pre-planting aerial survey (subject to Parks Victoria approval)
- collect locations of all the trees (potentially also running a hands on
QField / Input workshop)
- add trees to OSM (along with any other salient features that are missing)

Ideally everyone attending will also help plant trees - so please register
with ParkConnect if you plan to attend in any capacity.

Again, thanks to this community and especially the FOSS4G SotM Oceania
organising committee for their moral and financial support. I'd like to
specifically thank Tony Forster, who first suggested this project and has
done much of the on-ground logistics (getting support of Parks Victoria and
linking us up with local organisations / suppliers); and Mick van de Vreede
of Parks Victoria, who has help line a lot of stuff up to help this happen.

Please feel free to ask any questions by responding to list posts, or
contact me directly.
