Cumberland Council Tree Day Site Details

Cumberland Council

The Duck River corridor is Cumberland City Council's largest green corridor. Both the southern and northern reaches of the riparian corridor have been impacted by weeds encroaching on and outcompeting the native vegetation. To help support and improve the riparian corridor at Duck River, Council will be hosting a National Tree Day planting site at Auburn Community Picnic Ground a site that is located towards the northern reaches of Duck River. For our event we will be planting native trees, shrubs and ground cover plants consistent with the Cumberland Plains Woodland vegetation community. By planting trees, shrubs and ground cover we are helping to grow the habitat corridor at the site which will provide support for local biodiversity.

Cumberland City Council is participating in Planet Ark’s National Tree Day 2024. This year, one of our selected sites is Auburn Community Picnic Ground, located next to the Auburn Botanic Garden. There is a public car park available along Chiswick Road Auburn and additional parking is available in surrounding side streets.


This event will begin at 10am and conclude at 12pm. This is Council's satellite site and will not include a BBQ lunch. Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own picnic lunch or alternatively they can head over to Council's main site (Norford Road Park Chester Hill) for a BBQ at the conclusion of the tree planting. Sunscreen, gloves and trowels will be provided by Council; however, supplies may be limited so volunteers are encouraged to bring their own equipment to the event. Volunteers are encouraged to wear a hat for this event and bring plenty of water on the day.
