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.
-Degraded bushland which is infested with plants such as privet, Madeira vine, morning glory and lantana and littered with refuse and devoid of native birds is not an attractive sight. Already the fringes of Garrawarra State Conservation Area are beginning to look like this.
Don’t despair! We can live in harmony with our environment. All it takes is a greater awareness of the problems and the will to support organizations such as Landcare. The Helensburgh and District Landcare Group has active teams of local volunteers in Helensburgh who spend a few hours a month systematically attacking the weed problem and regenerating native vegetation.

Why you should Join Helensburgh & District Landcare
If you care about your environment you should definitely join your local Landcare group - we would love to see you. You don't have to be an expert on native vegetation or a dedicated green activist. Landcare is made up of ordinary people who simply want to make a difference.
