Community Tree Planting Days

Join us on Sunday 4 February 2024 for our first Community Tree Planting Day for 2024 and lend a hand to help plant native plants along the banks of the Macquarie Wambuul River.

Commencing at 10 am at Baillie Street Open Space Reserve, next to Evans Bridge, the event welcomes adults and kids alike to participate in planting native trees, shrubs, and grasses. The plantings will not only provide important habitat for local wildlife including Trout Cod, Platypus and the Grey-headed Flying-Fox but also improve the health and function of this much-loved river.

Why not lend us a hand on Sunday 25 February 2024 to help plant native plants along the banks of Jordan Creek.

Commencing at 10am off Boundary Road at Links Place Drainage Reserve, adults and kids alike can help plant native trees, shrubs and grasses that once mature will provide habitat for local wildlife, and improve the health and ecological function of this important urban waterway. Council will also have a free BBQ lunch afterwards.

For more information contact Council’s Community Environmental Engagement Programs Officer Bill Josh (Habitat Connect) on 0407 256 791 or Council’s Environmental Programs Coordinator Kristie Kearney on 02 6333 6233.

Conflated presents a range of inflatable materials, from balloons to digital audio and video informed by inflatable processes. Positioning the inflatable as the medium of our times, the exhibition prompts us to explore the inherent plasticity and transformative potential of that which can be blown up. The works conflate synthetic forms with human vulnerabilities, the abject, uncanny, eco-anxiety, colonised land, and the breath.
