Winter Edition of the Gecko

End of Winter greetings Blue Mountains Bushcarers! As always, its been an action-packed quarter with our 65 Bushcare groups doing lots of   weeding, planting and other bush-caring activities. Your dedication to our bushland never ceases to amaze and inspire the Bushcare Team (pictured below). We have been saddened by the deaths of 3 members of our   Bushcare community in recent times. I hope the tributes in this issue will evoke fond memories to those who knew them.

As well as doing our best to make sure Bushcare goes on at your site every month, we’ve been working on ensuring the visibility of Bushcare in the electronic world: The weeds website is at an exciting stage – the existing information is being moved to a new server, meaning it will be possible to include more weed profiles and information. If you would like to volunteer to assist with this process please contact Erin on 4780 5320, and for an update on the new Bushcare website. (, see inside.
