Why not lend us a hand to help plant native plants along the Wambuul Macquarie River.


Commencing at 10am at the Rankens Bridge and O'Keefe Parks, adults and kids alike can assist in mulching and replacing tree guards on flood damaged plantings and help plant native trees, shrubs and grasses that once mature will provide important habitat for local wildlife, and improve the health of this much loved river. Council will also have a free BBQ lunch afterwards.


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 light rain, so please bring a raincoat if required. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult carer.

For further information and/or to register please contact Bill Josh (Habitat Connect) on 0407 256 791 or Kristie Kearney (BRC Environmental Programs Coordinator) on 02 6333 6233.
