The Wolli Creek Preservation Society carries out bush restoration at many sites in the Wolli Creek area (see map and current regular dates) with the support of state government grants and Canterbury and Rockdale City Councils. These activities are primarily within the areas of the developing Wolli Creek Regional Park that are yet to come under the ownership of the National Parks and Wildlife Service, i.e. between Bexley North and Bardwell Park and between Turrella and Tempe. We generally work from 9-12.30 under the supervision of an experienced professional bush regenerator. There are also ‘guerrilla bushcare’ events for special needs areas. These usually last only a couple of hours and include occasional planting days.
If you are interested in joining any of these activities please email the Bushcare co-ordinator firstname.lastname@example.org and provide your phone and email contact details. Details about registration, the nature of the work and meeting places etc can then be provided to you. If you have time available, we are sure you’ll find you one or more occasions that fit your timetable. Come along and try it out before you make any commitment, but bushcare provides a rewarding and sociable time (especially at morning tea!). Prior experience is not necessary and we put on a training day for volunteers from time to time, but most basic things can be learnt ‘on the job’. If you have questions before you register, email our Bushcare co-ordinator email@example.com We need you to be on our volunteer list as sometimes the weather and other contingencies require late changes to regular arrangements.
