To facilitate a safe event for participants and staff:

  • Relevant COVID-19 considerations have been incorporated and approved in accordance with current NSW Health Guidelines

  • Due to the on-going situation with COVID-19, this event may have to be cancelled at short notice, this will be announced via email to registered participants, or via our website and Facebook.

 

Join us on Sunday 2 August for Koalatown Tree Planting

Book in to join us at one of our hourly sessions and get planting for our koalas and help support our local environment while you take in some fresh air and socialise.

We’re planting trees to increase koala habitats across Ingleburn and Macquarie Fields.

You’ll also get a chance to find out about Campbelltown City Council’s Bushcare program and how you can get involved.

We have received funding under the Australian Government’s 20 Million Trees Program to undertake revegetation of degraded lands within the Georges River Corridor.

The project will see 15,250 plants installed across four work areas in Ingleburn and Macquarie Fields with a primary focus on restoring previously cleared agricultural lands to secure koala habitats for the future. The works are being completed across 4ha of land (8 football fields) and involve removal of weed species and woody debris, mowing of grass and installation of fences to protect future plantings.

What to bring?

Please wear a hat, long pants, enclosed shoes and bring along some drinking water to stay hydrated.

Pledge to plant a tree for our koalas

Unable to make it? Take a pledge and we will plant a tree on your behalf. 

In response to the current circumstances presented by COVID-19, we are doing things a little differently this year.

We are hosting hourly, ticketed sessions which are capped at 15 people per session. This allows us to safely exercise government requirements and ensures safety of our community and staff. 

If you are unable to join us in person this year, you can still support the event by taking a pledge for our koalas and enhancing biodiversity at Ingleburn Reserve. 

All you need to do is complete the form below and let us know how you pledge to help make our suburbs koala friendly. We will then ensure our contractors plant 15,000 native trees, shrubs and ground covers on behalf of the Campbelltown community.

Make a pledge

 

This event is supported by the Federal Governments 20 Million Trees program. Campbelltown's 2020 Koalatown Tree Planting Day supports our Strategic Koala Revegetation Project.
