Bush Regeneration and Bushcare

Weed management is an incredibly important tool to protect biodiversity. Here is an inspirational video from the Australian Wildlife Conservancy on their weed management at Newhaven Wildlife Sanctuary in central Australia.

Friends of Berowra Valley support the NPWS with some bush regeneration groups around the Berowra Valley National Park.

Stringybark Ridge

Stringybark Ridge is a part of Berowra Valley National Park and is a very special ecological community.  We are looking for volunteers to help revegetate this area. For more info.

Stringybark Ecological Restoration

Provest Creek

We currently run a session on the second Sunday of each month at Provest Creek. We meet at 8 Tanglewood Way Hornsby Heights at 9.00am and finish 11.00am with a cup of tea and muffin.

If you intend to come you first need to register as a volunteer with NPWS (NSW Parks and Wildlife Service). Fill in an application and you will also need to be vaccinated.

Make sure that you wear long pants and a long sleeved shirt plus a hat to protect from sun. If you have any old trainers or boots they are best as it can get quite muddy and will wreck any nice shoes you have. We will provide gloves, tools, a mat and refreshments.

Contact us if you would like to be involved.

Hornsby Shire Council Bushcare

There are many opportunities to be involved as a Bushcare volunteer through Hornsby Shire Council. They run an amazing volunteer program where each session has a trainer and all tools and equipment are provided.

This map shows you the location of volunteer groups across the Hornsby Shire as well as the times that they meet. Click on the group link and you can join up by clicking on the More Info link associated with the group.
