Engaging community spirit

Working together for a healthier environment

Making a difference

Our work began with a group of volunteers wanting to make a difference in Pioneer Park, a Denmark Shire Bushland Reserve behind the Visitors Centre. The results were so encouraging attention was turned to other reserves.

Today, the group works on over twenty peri-urban reserves, including Mount Hallowell and Wilson Inlet Foreshore. We also cover coastal and hinterland reserves, on a seasonal rotation, and prioritised according to need.

Our native bush reserves provide significant value in terms of amenity for community, and protection for biodiversity.

Our Services

We provide the following services to support native bushland management on public or private land:

  • Plant identification
  • Weed Control
  • Workshops & training
  • Coordination of volunteer programs

Enhancing habitat, landscape
and other bushland values

Identifying threats to our local bushland enables the community to have informed input into management decisions for public reserves, and to better manage their own properties.

Using minimum disturbance methods

We work in the best bits of bush first, removing isolated weeds and gradually working towards more weed infested areas. Most weeds are removed using a fork and secateurs and material is usually carted off-site.

Get involved

We encourage community participation in caring for our bushland. The weed action group provides an opportunity for coming on-site, learning about your local patch and a range of weed information resources.

Our work is informed by Federal, State, Regional and Local Shire Weed Strategies, and implemented through on-ground weed control, community engagement and school education.
