Free event to celebrate Koala Habitat Planting

09th Apr 2024

The Armidale Urban Rivercare Group (AURG) are inviting the public to join them to celebrate Koala habitat planting on Sunday, April 14th. The free event will take place at the planting site which is opposite 27 Kennedy Street, Armidale from 8.30am to 12.30pm
The Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership, under the NSW Koala Strategy, is proud to support the Koala Habitat tree plantings adjacent to the Weedy Wasteland to Wildlife Wetland Project (WW2WW).
Through creating and expanding koala habitat they are able to support local koala populations as they adapt and move throughout the landscape.
The WW2WW project is allowing the group to share information on koalas in the Northern Tablelands, the types of feed trees they use, and the importance of suitable habitat in the community.
AURG is a subgroup of Southern New England Landcare Ltd and has undertaken the project with support from the Northern Tablelands Koala Partnership hosted by Southern New England Landcare, NSW Government, University of New England’s Aquatic Ecology and Restoration Group, Armidale Regional Council and Armidale Dumaresq Lions who will provide morning tea and lunch.
To RSVP and for further information on the projects or dates of future working bees, please contact either Bryan Johnson 0429 721 424 or Bruce Whan 0407 456 169.
