Bathurst Regional Council Tree Day Site Details

Bathurst Regional Council

Join us on Sunday 28 July 2024 for National Tree Day and lend a hand to help plant native plants for flying-fox habitat along the banks of the Macquarie Wambuul River. Commencing at 10 am off Morrisset Street and Zante Lane, downstream of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, the event welcomes adults and kids alike to participate in planting native trees, shrubs, and grasses. The plantings will not only improve the health and function of this much-loved river but will help restore critical roosting habitat for the Little Red Flying-fox and threatened Grey-headed Flying-fox - seasonal visitors to our region! The Wambuul Macquarie River Bathurst Flying-fox Camp Habitat Restoration Project is part of the Flying-fox Habitat Restoration Program assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust in association with Local Government NSW, and Bathurst Regional Council.
