Join us as we plant trees for biodiversity month

September is biodiversity month and to celebrate Charles Sturt University in Orange with Summer Hill Creekcare will host a Tree Planting Day on Sunday 25 September from 9.30am until 12pm.

There will be a mixture of trees, shrubs and groundcovers planted, all of which are local native species.
