Bushcare Group in Mount Victoria @ Toll House, Mount Victoria

Mount Victoria Bushcare

All welcome! Training is provided for new people by the BMCC Bushcare Officer.
 
Bushcare is for you if you like:
 
– Being in bushland,
– Meeting interesting people,
– Helping the local environment,
– Learning about the Blue Mountains.
 
A Bushcare Group will go out into their patch of bush each month, assess the existing vegetation, and try to strengthen and encourage it to expand. They do this by a process called Bush Regeneration, which involves the removal of exotic weeds. This allows native plants to germinate and flourish. They work as a team, expanding into new areas, but also consolidating achievements already gained.
 
This way a Bushcare Group makes net wins against the weeds, and with persistence can improve the natural and aesthetic values of their reserves. Other activities include stormwater control works, erosion control works, track maintenance and improvement, seed collection, plant propagation, public education, and other bushland management issues. For every hour council puts into the program the community puts in more than three. Over the last few years over 9,600 volunteer hours have been worked each year on Bushcare projects.
 
The Mount Victoria Bushcare Group usually meet at Fairy Bower Reserve on the 4th Sunday of the month but check with Marianne first, particularly if it’s your first time, as the care site sometimes changes or the meeting may be called off because of weather. Regular participants will also receive an email confirming times and meeting places each month. Wear a hat, sunscreen and closed in shoes and bring your morning tea. Tools are provided.
