Inner West Council - Tempe Reserve Tree Day Site Details

Inner West Council - Tempe Reserve

Tempe Reserve has been extensively restored including many areas of native vegetation. The site was a shale quarry in the 1920s and a greyhound racing track in the 1970s. It now has a thriving wetland and is the birthplace of the Tempe Birdos, a birding group that meets monthly to survey birdlife. Understorey planting undertaken as part of 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).
