About this Event

Greater Sydney Landcare Network is offering a series of FREE workshops to help our community learn how to create habitat and cool our city through planting.

For our third workshop, we’re heading down to Gallery Gardens to learn how we can be better neighbours and improve urban ecosystems in our city. Urban areas are often seen a devoid of nature, however, cities can host diverse species by taking actions to create habitat for native species. Come learn what steps you can take to help our urban ecosystems!

During the morning, you will learn all about bushland in our city and a project along Toongabie Creek that’s creating habitat for small birds.

We’ll be joined by Landcare Coordinator, Elisha Duxbury, who will give a short talk on urban ecology, and Bushcare Legend Simon Alexander who will tell us about the work they’re doing to restore habitat in the local area.

Please wear long sleeves, long pants, closed sturdy shoes and a hat / sunscreen, and bring at least 2 litres of drinking water.
