Great work, butts are a scourge on our wildlife from ingestion to toxin absorption.

This is so great to see! Bins with educational signage is a great way to get the message across and make people realize the impact a small decision to throw something away can have to their local natural environment.

Wahroonga Waterways Landcare
3 members Landcare
We look after a 31.4 ha E2 Environmental Conservation Zone containing 3 types of Sydney Sandstone Gully Forest, Blue Gum High Forest, Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest and Riparian Vegetation communities. Our landcare group operates in conjunction with a professional bush regeneration team. Achievements Besides community volunteers and students, the core group is made up of horticulturalists, science and teacher graduates from the grounds and projects department of Adventist Aged Care Ltd. As a patron to our group they assist with land care supplies and equipment. The Landcare Nursery and potting shed is the crucible of our regeneration work. The group has experienced many positive results in the environmental restoration of this E2 Conservation Zone. With this learnt knowledge of the intricate biodiversity of the urban waterway comes a desire to share these results and continue in training others create positive environmental outcomes. In the last couple of years we have begun restoration and planting in our Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest after weed control as well as undertaking a major Landcare 25th Anniversary erosion control project in the Comenarra Ck. We have also conducted numerous environmental education sessions and tours catering to school groups, corporate groups and our community. Community Engagement We operate a volunteer day every Tuesday from 8:45-12:30 meeting at our potting shed located at 150 Fox Valley Road Wahroonga. With nursery management background comes training of Hygiene and hence our motto, “don’t let a weed go to seed”. To this effect we have facilitated community involvement by placing a bin at every entrance with a roll of bags provided to collect weed seed, rubbish and dog droppings that pollute the environment. We run community project days and workshops including orchid tours, hydrology talks, seed collection workshops, propagation workshops, spotlighting, stream health testing, invertebrate discovery and a wide range of other educational events.  Our team has a broad range of knowledge and experience and includes horticulturists, ecologist, naturalist, outdoor education professionals, forester and general environmental enthusiasts.
