We are a group of volunteers with a diverse range of backgrounds, brought together by our love of nature. We host regular events such as talks, walks and are active with habitat restoration projects such as bush regeneration. Would you like to become more involved with us? We would love to hear from you. We hold committee meetings bi-monthly from 7.00 pm to 8.30 pm on the first Wednesday of February, April, June, August, October and December.
By Noel Rosten Reviewed by Wendy Grimm Australian Plant Society Orchids are herbaceous plants. More than thirty species have been found in the Park. At least seven species use trees or rocks as hosts (epiphytes). They use their host only as support, not for food. The remainder are orchids that grow in the ground (terrestrials). […]Read More
By Dr Mike Gray and updated by Dr Helen Smith, Australian Museum An enormous variety of spiders can be seen in the Berowra Valley region. Some of the more obvious are the web builders, especially the orb-web weaving families.Read More
We work hard to protect the bushland of the Berowra Valley. This includes the native flora and fauna that sadly we can no longer take for granted.
Our newsletters are full of interesting information as well as up and coming activities.
Contribute your skills and talents to help conserve our beautiful bushland.
Your donations help fund our campaigns and go towards restoring bushland projects in Berowra Valley.
Berowra Valley is home to at least 517 flowering plant species as well as 168 birds, 19 native mammals, 38 reptiles and 14 frog species – a total of 756 species. While this total may seem high, it is a small number relative to the total number of invertebrates, moss, lichen, fungus and bacterial species in the same area. This total is currently unknown but a conservative guess would be 5000 species. Although most of these organisms are small to microscopic, they are vital to the ecosystem processes such as nutrient recycling, energy flow, pollination, seed dispersal, the disposal of wastes and decomposition that maintain the beauty and the function of the Park.
We contribute to citizen science projects that research and protect our most vulnerable species.
We acknowledge and respect the Aboriginal Peoples of these lands and remember that we always walk respectfully on Country.
