Sydney Water trashes Wolli bushland

On June 8 a WCPS volunteer Bushcare team was horrified to find that  bushland at the Bexley North end of the Wolli Creek Valley had been cleared by a Sydney Water contractor. Many native trees and shrubs have been cut down, native grasses and other ground covers severely whipper snipped, ferns and orchids crushed, and the branches of cut vegetation piled on top of other native plants.

WCPS has issued a press release which can be viewed here

Update note – August 2022.

Sydney Water has undertaken to fund WCPS to undertake bushland restoration works to address some of the damage caused to the area.
