Celebrate one of Australia’s most iconic species and one of Campbelltown’s greatest natural assets by planting important food trees at a special tree planting event this Wild Koala Day.

Residents are invited to help plant 750 trees, shrubs and grasses at Cook Reserve, Ruse on Sunday 5 May from 10am to 2pm.

“This is an opportunity for people to get involved in a great initiative that directly contributes to preserving our local koalas while learning more about the animals and the importance of our local ecological communities,” Mayor Dr George Greiss said.

“Thousands of trees have been planted at community events at Cook Reserve these past few years in order to regenerate and improve endangered vegetation in the area while providing important habitat for koalas along a key urban bush corridor,” Dr Greiss said.

The trees planted are used by koalas traversing the area as a source of nourishment and habitat.

Registrations for the event are now open.
