To celebrate Biodiversity Month this September, Maitland City Council will be assisting our native vegetation by holding a community planting event at Tenambit Wetlands.
The native vegetation at Tenambit Wetlands is an endangered ecological community called the Lower Hunter Spotted Gum Ironbark Forest. This community exists as fragmented remnants throughout Maitland and the Lower Hunter and it is estimated that 10% of the pre-European distribution still exists. This habitat is home to many native animals.
The event on Saturday 21 September will commence at 9.00am until all 400 seedlings have been planted.
Registrations will be undertaken on the day, and participants are asked to wear appropriate sun wear, long pants, enclosed shoes and bring along some water and gloves.
