Residents are invited to plant a tree for Campbelltown’s koalas and help provide a valuable future food source for the animals during a Wild Koala Day tree planting event at Worrell Park, Ruse on Sunday 1 May.

The event will be held from 10am to 3pm and will see more than 1,000 native trees, shrubs and ground plans planted to improve critically endangered Shale Sandstone Transition Forest vegetation and primary koala habitat in the area.

“This is a real opportunity for residents to be part of a great initiative to improve habitat for our local koalas while also increasing the tree canopy cover of our city,” Mayor George Greiss said.

“We know that koalas regularly move through urban bush corridors in Ruse, so it’s important that we have available food sources and trees to use,” Cr Greiss said.

“It’s also a great way to get outdoors, learn more about our Koalatown initiatives and Bushcare programs, and make a difference in the community,” he said.

Attendees must book in advance to join in one of four one-hour planting sessions.

Wild Koala Day tree planting event is supported by the Creating Canopies in Greater Sydney initiative, a partnership between Greater Sydney Landcare, Landcare NSW and the Department of Planning Industry and Environment (DPIE) to plant 100,000 trees across Greater Sydney from 2020 to 2022.
