Get involved at our National Tree Day Planting event with Campbelltown Council to help support wildlife and enhance habitat.

Join in the fun of installing 1,000 native plants at Milton Park to increase canopy cover and improve critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland.

Campbelltown Council’s Natural Areas Team, Greening Australia, the Redfern Creek Bushcare Group and local schools invite you to help install 1,000 native plants at Milton Park to improve critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland in Macquarie Fields. At the same time you can check on the 4,500 native stems previously planted within Milton Park in 2022 and 2023.

Half of Australia’s threatened native fauna live on the edge of urban areas. By planting trees in our community we can provide homes, food and shelter for our native animals – and improve the natural amenity values of the park for local residents too!
