The environment along the Nepean River is set for a boost with Council hosting a special community tree planting event this weekend.

Council planted 500 locally iconic Camden White Gums as part of the NSW Government’s Greening Our City program in 2021, with a number of trees damaged during four floods in the Camden area this year.

Replacement trees will be planted at a community event to be held at Elizabeth Macarthur Reserve in Camden South, on Saturday 5 November between 9am and midday, which will include:

  • A free community BBQ;
  • Coffee van;
  • Garden games; and
  • Face painting.

Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said it was important to help rejuvenate the Camden environment after the significant floods this year.

“Camden sits within a beautiful environment and the Nepean River is one of our most important assets. It is vital Council works to repair the damage sustained,” Cr Fedeli said.

“More trees will not only add to our tree canopy, but also provide great habitat and shade for our community.

“I encourage residents to join us at the free community tree planting event to celebrate our beautiful area.”
