City of Canterbury Bankstown Tree Day Site Details

City of Canterbury Bankstown

Join our planting day at Pat O'Connor Reserve, Canterbury to help boost native habitat within our biodiversity corridors. Earlier this year 1500 native trees and tall shrubs were planted to cool our local area and create valuable habitats for birds and other wildlife. Now we will be planting lower shrubs, grasses and groundcovers to fill in the gaps and create the understorey habitat. Understorey is just as important for local biodiversity as the canopy. It provides food and refuge for small birds, supports a diversity of insects including important pollinators, and shelter for ground-dwelling animals like frogs and lizards.
