Western Sydney Parklands

Bringing Back The Bush Program

Over the past five years, 20,000 Western Sydney School children have planted 100,000 trees within the Western Sydney Parklands as part of the 500 Schools Planting Program.

This year we’re 'Bringing Back the Bush' with a free schools tree planting and environmental education program!

Registrations for term 2 opening soon

The first round of our 2018 ‘Bringing Back the Bush’ school tree-planting program is fully booked. However, registrations for term 2 will open soon. Subscribe to our enews or follow us on social for updates.

Principals and teachers can register their students now. If you're a parent - let your child's school know! It’s easy to register for this fun, educational day in Western Sydney Parklands.

It’s also free and operated by experienced and qualified environmental educators.

This free program is open to primary and high school students with the aim of planting 20,000 native trees, shrubs, grasses and wildflowers across the Parklands.

Students in grade 4 - 12 are eligible, and each will walk away with:

  • a re-usable tote bag

Transport is also included at no cost.
