Event Details

Join your local community and make a real difference by taking part in this fantastic conservation project

National Tree Day

This year, the City of Parramatta have teamed up with Planet Ark to plant 10,000 native seedlings which have been propagated from the surrounding bushland for National Tree Day. The planting project aims to increase biodiversity and improve habitat by planting 10,000 native trees, shrubs and groundcovers along the creek line. This location is important because it is part of an ecologically endangered vegetation community known as Cumberland River-Flat Forest. This reserve is also an important wildlife corridor for our native animals and birds.

We welcome families and community groups to join us for a fun day of planting. There will be a free sausage sizzle provided by the Lions Club and the following activities:

  • Kids Face Painting
  • Taronga Zoomobile
  • Kids Nature Craft Activites
  • Coffee and Ice-cream
  • Special guests: Dirtgirl and Costa the garden gnome
  • Indigenous Dance Performance
  • Kids Yoga

Come and join the fun and be inspired by nature! And don’t forget to wear sturdy closed-in shoes and sun protection, and bring your water bottle and gardening gloves if you have them (we will have some gloves on the day if you don't have any)

We can't wait to see you there!

Venue: Third Settlement Reserve, Edison Parade (enter opposite Euclid Street, Winston Hills)
