The Botany Bay Busy Bees have been working out of the Kurnell section of the Kamay Botany Bay National Park for over 20 years. Come along and work with friendly, like-minded people helping to preserve this historically significant site. Bush regeneration activities will focus on eradication of invasive weeds including Bitou Bush, Lantana and Asparagus Fern, with occasional planting activities.
This group meets twice a month at Kurnell Visitor Centre. You’ll receive on-the-job training and supervision in plant and weed identification, and general bush regeneration techniques. Come fully dressed ready to participate, and bring along water and any personal medication. Tea, coffee and biscuits are always provided, as are all the necessary tools, gloves and eye protection.
Following this season's unprecedented bushfires, you can register your interest to help the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the Saving our Species program rehabilitate and protect our threatened animals and plants.
Australia is home to more than 500,000 animal and plant species, many of which are found nowhere else in the world. Saving our Species is a statewide conservation program that addresses the growing number of Australian animals and Australian native plants facing extinction.
