Aims of the project: With the financial support of a Restoration & Rehabilitation grant from the NSW Environmental Trust, Duffys Forest Residents Association (DFRA) is hosting National Tree Day at Waratah Park aka (Skippy Park).
In recognition of the heritage significance to the people of NSW this site was listed was listed on the State Heritage Register in 2015. Our funding grant aims to inspire, educate and recruit Australians to actively care for our unique land. As part of the ongoing rehabilitation project we aim to plant 400 native tube stock on the day. These planting will help to restore and beautify degraded areas, increase biodiversity and provide additional wildlife habitat.
A qualified bush regenerator will demonstrate planting techniques and answer any questions from participants about bush regeneration and at the completion of planting, participants will be given the opportunity to learn about the native species occurring on the site from our guest speaker and Botanist, Helen Dauncey
This event is an opportunity to reconnect with nature and to do something positive for your local environment and community.
