Camden's getting cooler with Landcare

Posted 19 months ago in Environment


Camden is one step closer to being cooler and more wildlife friendly thanks to Council’s partnership with the Greater Sydney Landcare Network.

A total of 300 trees were installed throughout June and August, as part of the collaboration with Landcare – 100 at Ron Dine Reserve, Camden South and 200 at Camden Town Farm, Camden.

Funding for the ‘Creating Canopies’ project was provided to Greater Sydney Landcare Network and Landcare NSW under the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment Greening our City Premier’s Priority to deliver one million trees across Greater Sydney by 2022.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said the project was a fantastic way to improve our environment and invite people back into nature.

“Tree canopies will help create habitat for wildlife, increase tree diversity and lead to a cooler city,” Cr Fedeli said.

“As I have always said, Camden is the best place to live! Thanks to initiatives such as this, we are heading towards becoming an even more beautiful and environmentally friendly town.

“The trees installed at Ron Dine in June had 30 preschool children and 10 adults contribute their time to the event, which makes me so proud of the community we have here in Camden.

“Our wildlife in Camden is very important and through this initiative, more habitats will be created.”
