Contact Bill Josh (Habitat Connect) on 0407 256 791 or Kristie Kearney (Environmental Programs Coordinator) on (02) 6333 6233

Don your gardening gloves, embrace the outdoors and lend us a hand to help plant native plants along the banks of Hawthornden Creek at Jaques Park, South Bathurst.

Commencing at 10am at the Alma Street side of Hawthornden Creek (just next to the footbridge), adults and kids alike can assist in planting native trees, shrubs and grasses that once mature will provide important habitat for local wildlife, and will stabilise the creek bank to reduce erosion.

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 hygiene practices we ask that you please bring along your own gardening gloves. Council will provide hand washing facilities. The event will go ahead in rain, so please bring a raincoat if required. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult carer.

Due to COVID Safe Guidelines, numbers are strictly limited to 20 persons and volunteers must register prior to these activities. For further information and/or to register please contact Bill Josh on 0407 256 791 or Kristie Kearney (Environmental Programs Coordinator) on (02) 6333 6233 or email .

Bathurst Regional Council requires staff and participants to follow safe hygiene practices to protect themselves and fellow participants. The follow protocols are to be adhered to:

- Staff or participants who are feeling unwell and/or showing signs of COVID-19, have recently returned from overseas travel, have recently visited a known hotspot, or think they may have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, are not to participate in any activity delivered by Bathurst Regional Council and should monitor their health and seek medical attention.
- Staff and participants are to follow good hygiene practices, including washing hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and/or alcohol based hand sanitizer, covering coughs and sneezes, or coughing into their elbow or shoulder and avoiding touching eyes, nose or mouth.
- Staff and participants must maintain distance from others as much as possible, avoid shaking hands, kissing, hugging or touching others, ensure social distancing is maintained as required between staff, participants, and groups of participants.
- Staff and participants are to remain 1.5m apart or 1 person per 4m².
- Pre-activity brief with participants will be conducted away from site entry and exit points to minimise community spread by non-participants.
- Small groups of no more than 20 community participants (including staff) to ensure not crossing over with non-participants therefore minimising community spread.

If staff and/or participants have been identified as a contact of a person with confirmed COVID-19 infection in Australia, the local public health unit will contact that staff member and/or participant with advice. Staff and participants need to isolate themselves at home for 14 days after contact with the infected person, and to monitor their health and report any symptoms.
