Inner West Council - Richard Murden Reserve Tree Day Site Details

Inner West Council - Richard Murden Reserve

There are several areas within Richard Murden Reserve that are managed by Council’s Urban Ecology team and maintained by Bushcare volunteers. The first area was established in September 2000 as part of the Olympic Landcare project. Regular volunteer working bees have been undertaken at the site since it was established. A large diversity of birds, including the Sacred Kingfisher (Todiramphus sanctus), Brown Goshawk (Accipiter fasciatus) and Superb Blue Wren (Malurus cynaneus) have been observed at the site. Understorey planting for this year's National Tree Day will increase habitat for insects, reptiles and small birds, and will help improve soil structure and biodiversity (e.g. microbes, worms and fungi). There will also be a tree giveaway at this site. See details below. Tree Giveaway Inner West Council will once again give away free trees to residents for National Tree Day. The trees are in advanced containers and include small, medium and large size native and exotic species. More information to come. There is a limit of two trees per household, Inner West Council residents only. For more information visit https://www.innerwest.nsw.gov.au/explore/whats-on/events-in-detail/national-tree-day
