Whiteman Park's NTD community planting Tree Day Site Details

Whiteman Park's NTD community planting

Our annual National Tree Day plantings are a great opportunity for the local community to get involved in the revegetation and overall improvement of previously disturbed and degraded habitats in the Park, so we'd still love to see everyone and their green thumbs! This year, we are returning to a previous fenced site at the back of Revolutions Transport Museum, as we continue to improve fauna corridors and vegetation buffers for the nearby Wunanga Trail. The site is encircled by damplands and wetlands associated with the headwaters of Bennett Brook, or Kordiny Karla Boodja, which provides habitat for a range of species, from the quenda and black-gloved wallaby to resident frogs and a host of small birds. Volunteers should wear enclosed shoes and weather appropriate clothing, including hats, long sleeve shirts, long pants and/or a rain jacket). Please bring some gloves if you’d prefer to use them, but we will have hand washing facilities on site.
