1990 (Jan) - Pre 1992: Popes Glen Bushcare
This is the 30-year story of Popes Glen in the Blue Mountains, NSW and how a thriving wetland was created from an environmental wasteland at the headwaters of Popes Glen Creek, Blackheath. It is a remarkable demonstration of what can be achieved when a group of volunteers works in a long-term partnership with their local council and with targeted funding support. This project was supported by a number of special-purpose grants over its life, in particular from the Environmental Trust of NSW to enabled contractors to carry out major works beyond the capacity of the volunteer group and council.
