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 .
