Beautiful weather shone down on the 27 people who volunteered their time to plant 1,000 trees along the waterway at Cubbitch Barta Reserve in Camden Park, Wollondilly LGA on Saturday 26th August.

This planting will serve the local native wildlife well by upholding the bank against erosion. These plants will also provide wildlife with shelter and food as we planted a lot of flowering plants which our nectarivores and pollinators will appreciate.

Wollondilly Council also donated 500 grasses to be planted alongside the trees and shrubs to add to the biodiversity of the area.

There is a lot of wildlife at Cubbitch Barta Reserve including swamp hens, ducks, lorikeets, kookaburras, lizards and even a few red belly black snakes, which we saw nearby and respectfully stayed clear of.


Kane Durrant from WILD Conservation, also came along to the planting. He gave an inspiring talk to the volunteers about why the work they were doing was beneficial to the local wildlife and our natural environment.

Thank you to all that attended and made this such a fantastic day.
