With the spring planting season nearly upon us, Council is calling on the local community to don your gardening gloves, embrace the outdoors and lend us a hand to plant native trees and shrubs along the Macquarie Wambuul River.
Commencing at 10am at the Hereford Street Open Space (on the Kelso side of the Macquarie River 300m north of the Hereford Street bridge), adults and kids alike can assist in planting native trees, shrubs and grasses that once mature, will provide important habitat for local wildlife and improve the health of this much loved river.
No experience is needed and all plants and equipment are provided. Please bring water, sunscreen, and a hat and wear suitable shoes, and clothing for being outdoors. To ensure safe hygience practices we ask that you please bring along your own gardening gloves. Council will provide hand washing facilities. The event will go ahead in light rain, so please bring a raincoat if required. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult carer.
Due to Bathurst Regional Councils COVID Safe Guidelines, numbers are strictly limited to 20 persons and volunteers must register prior to this activity. For further information and/or to register please contact Bill Josh on 0407 256 791 or Kristie Kearney (Environmental Programs Coordinator) on (02) 6333 6285 or email.
