Post-fire Restoration Cleopatra Swamp Blackheath

Friday 28 May, 2021 @ 9:30 am 12:30 pm

Get involved in this exciting new project to help post-fire recovery in Blackheath!

Since the 2019-20 fires, the native vegetation in Blackheath is recovering at an exciting rate. Unfortunately, so are the weeds! The fires stimulated a mass germination of Gorse and Broom in this beautiful Blue Mountains Swamp, upstream of the Braeside walking track. Here is your chance to contribute to the massive long-term efforts of local Bushcare volunteers and help tackle these high priority weeds before they flower and release seed.

Please RSVP to Monica before 22 May by emailing mnugent@bmcc.nsw.gov.au or 4780 5623
