Help rebuild habitat for our city’s threatened grey-headed flying foxes. Don your gardening gloves, embrace the outdoors and lend us a hand to help replant native trees that were recently vandalised along the banks of the Macquarie Wambul River! The day will also commemorate National Threatened Species Day which is held on the following day - 7th September. Learn about the fascinating world of the flying fox and the important role it plays in biodiversity. The trees that you plant on the day will contribute to increasing important habitat for this threatened species.
Commencing at 10am at the end of Morrisset Street (just near the Wastewater Treatment Plant) on the banks of the Macquarie River, adults and kids alike can assist in planting native trees, that once mature, will provide important habitat for this threatened species.
