Bathurst Regional Council National Tree Day
Join us on Sunday, July 30, 2023, for Planet Arks National Tree Day and lend a hand to help plant native plants along the banks of the Wambuul Macquarie River? Commencing at 10 am next to Evans Bridge in Baillie Street Open Space Reserve, this event welcomes adults and kids alike to participate in planting native trees, shrubs, and grasses. These plantings will not only provide important habitat for local wildlife including the threatened Trout Cod and elusive Platypus but also improve the health and function of this much-loved river.
