Camden's critters will be able to quench their thirst at will with the installation of two water stations in Mount Annan bushland.

Camden Council partnered with Animals Australia to provide the 'Water for Wildlife' drinking stations within George Caley Reserve, and is calling on animal-loving locals to help monitor the stations.

Each water station can hold 15 litres of drinking water for the region's native animals to utilise.

The stations will need to be checked regularly to ensure wildlife such as wallabies, wombats, echidnas and birds are able to safely access the water at all times.

Camden mayor Therese Fedeli said residents could do their part by reporting any observations or requests for maintenance as they passed the stations when visiting the reserve.

"We are lucky enough to be living amongst a diverse environment which is home to many animals and the council is committed to caring for them," she said.

"It is important that residents contact the council with any observations of wildlife using the water drinking stations or if the water stations need maintenance.

"By letting us know any observations you make about the water stations when using the reserve, we will be able to determine how this project is helping our local wildlife."
