Greater Sydney Landcare Network had our first Creating Canopies planting day on Saturday 22nd August 2020. Robyn Preston Member for Hawkesbury, Landcare NSW CEO Adrian Zammit, and seventeen volunteers gathered to plant 130 trees, which will contribute to an important local habitat corridor for koalas.
The planting site in on the property of a local landholder in Kurrajong, who is working with his neighbours to restore vegetation along Little Wheeny Creek. The trees planted are native to the area and are food species for koalas.
This is the first event, which will contribute to planting 100,000 trees across Greater Sydney in partnership between Greater Sydney Landcare Network and Landcare NSW.
