Wagstaffe bushcare invites you to volunteer to help weed out lantana, bitou bush, asparagus fern and camphor laurel, which currently invade the endangered ecological community of spotted gum forest.

Weeding will encourage regeneration of the forest and other Australian native plants that provide the habitat for endangered species of Australian animals and birds such as:

•    Yellow-bellied glider
•    Powerful owl
•    Glossy black cockatoo

Training and tools are provided, as are fresh air, great company and the opportunity for a bit of exercise. NSW National Parks and Wagstaffe bushcare group looks forward to having you along and participating in this rewarding volunteer work. Please contact us for more information.

For directions, safety and practical information, see visitor info

Saving Our Species program

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.
