Thirty people helped us Bring the buzz back to the Cumberland Plain Woodland at Atlantic Boulevard Reserve in Glenfield. We planted 400 plants which will become vital resources for local pollinators. All species that we planted were native to the Cumberland Plain Woodland.

After the tree planting day, we made bee hotels for native solitary bees. The two types of bee hotels: bundles of pithy stems for reed nesting bees and clay pots for ground nesting bees. This habitat will provide refuge for bees in backyards.

‘Bringing back the buzz to the Cumberland Plain Woodland’ is managed by the National Parks Association of NSW Inc. and has been assisted by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust.
