Event description
Help expand our important riparian corridor to create habitat for our amazing wildlife!

About this event

Join Penrith City Council and Greater Sydney Landcare Network for a day of tree planting at South Creek in St Mary's! We are repairing a riparian corridor for habitat, stabilise the bank and to provide a restorative environment for locals.

The planting patch is along the bank of South Creek, which provides an important wildlife corridor for small birds, microbats, and other native animals to travel through the landscape.

Green spaces aren't just great for urban ecosystems, they're also associated with better physical, lower stress levels, and greater community satisfaction. Now's your chance to get involved with repairing this space in your neighbourhood.

On-site training, tools, and refreshments will be provided.

Please wear long sleeves, long pants, closed sturdy shoes and a hat and sunscreen, and bring at least 2 litres of drinking water. We encourage everyone to please bring your own gardening gloves for COVID-19 safety considerations.

RSVPs are essential to help us with catering. Please email us or cancel your ticket if you can no longer attend.

Instructions on parking and exact meeting point will be provided to those who have registered. You will need to provide your own transportation to the site.

For insurance purposes you must be accompanied by an adult if you are under 16 years old.

For more information contact Jess Whittick 0448692153 or Jess.Whittick@penrith.city
