Inner West Council - Session 3 Tree Day Site Details

Inner West Council - Session 3

Inner West Council’s Urban Ecology team invites you to take part in our National Tree Day Planting event 2024. This is an exciting opportunity to get your hands dirty, give back to the community and be part of our group effort to improve biodiversity in the Inner West! With a widespread loss of urban bushland, combined efforts to restore midstory and understory vegetation are more important than ever. Planting native plants provides crucial habitat to native small bird species, reptiles, marsupials and mammals. To help with National Tree Day 2024, the team have selected a variety of locally sourced, endemic flora for the community to plant in the restoration area at the mouth of the Hawthorne Canal. These species are locally native, highly diverse and are the building blocks of the Floodplain Forest vegetation community we are looking to reestablish for the area. These are the plants that show you what Country you are on. Expect to see and learn about all the locally native plants of the Inner West’s Floodplain Forests, including Paperbarks, Lily Pilly, Wattles and more! National Tree Day 2024 will take place at the end of Hawthorne Parade, Haberfield
