Blacktown City Council is expanding its popular Bushcare program and is planning to establish four new Bushcare groups.
Blacktown City Council Mayor Tony Bleasdale OAM, said all that is required is a passion to learn about the preservation of the city’s natural environment.
“Bushcare groups are the perfect opportunity for residents to head outdoors and play an important role in taking care of our bushland,” Mayor Bleasdale said.
“You don’t need any training, all you need is a passion to go outside and learn about our local environment.
“Our Bushcare groups take part in numerous activities including bush regeneration, weed removal, tree planting and habitat restoration.”
All Bushcare groups in Blacktown City are supported by Council through the provision of bush regeneration training, supervision, plants, tools, technical advice and information on grants and other special projects.
Expressions of interest are being sought for the development of Bushcare groups at:
• Peridot Park, Aquamarine Street, Quakers Hill
• Faulkland Crescent Reserve, Faulkland Crescent, Kings Park
• RAAF Memorial Park, Belmore Avenue, Mt Druitt
• Peel Reserve, Alkoomie Street, The Ponds
Volunteers generally work for 3 hours, one weekend a month.
