Community planting day

Join us for a community planting day near Grahamstown Dam! Through regeneration and restoration, we can help the flora and fauna that call the bush home, including local koalas and threatened species of bottle brush.

We’re setting out to plant over 1000 groundcovers, shrubs and trees to help:

  • improve koala habitat availability and connectivity
  • improve long-term viability of threatened bottle brush (callistemon linearifolius)
  • promote native regeneration, suppression of weeds and restoration of pre-existing native vegetation.

Come along for a free, family friendly day in the bush doing good for our community and environment, and see what a difference we can make together.

This project has been assisted by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust.
