News from the Bushcare Team

Well, another season has passed and the Waratahs have worked their magic all over the mountains yet again! Most Bushcare Groups are full steam ahead with the burst of weeds that Spring usually brings along with the warmer temperatures or busy with revegetation works.

The big news from the Bushcare Office is that from November 2nd, as part of an internal restructure, Council’s Bushland Operations Team will sit within the ‘Environment and Culture’ Branch in the City and Community Outcomes Directorate, headed by Luke Nicholls. A Bushland Operations Co-ordinator will be appointed shortly. ‘Bushland Ops’ comprises the Bushcare, Bush Regeneration, Walking Tracks and Urban Weeds Teams. We are expecting the change to lead to a more streamlined integration between environmental strategy, planning and service delivery.

Otherwise, its business as usual and that means Bushcare! Do you know someone who hasn’t yet tried it out? Get them along to the Bushcare Major Day Out in Warrimoo on Saturday 31st October, then!

Happy reading, happy bushcaring,

— Monica, for the Bushcare Team.
