Our Helensburgh Creek site will now benefit from having a Wollongong Bushcare Group working there.
The first work day is Wednesday 22 February, 2017. We will be working from 9 am to 12 noon.
This site is our original Landcare site which we first started working on in 1993. A lot of great work has been done here over the years, but now we are seeing some new problems on the site.
If you can come wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves, hat and water.
Landcare is a non-governmental community movement dedicated to preventing land degradation and achieving sustainable land management. It consists of a network of local volunteer groups of which there are over 1700 in New South Wales alone. Each group works to find local solutions to local problems such as salinity, soil degradation, animal pests, weeds, vegetation loss, waterside erosion, poor water quality, coastal degradation and urban land degradation. If you appreciate how lucky we are in the Helensburgh district to enjoy a relatively unspoiled bush environment you should also be aware that it is under serious threat. read more
