Canterbury Council, The Ethnic Communities’ Council NSW and SAVE project want you to express your love of nature by taking part in the Biodiversity Photo Competition.
The first of its kind this year, the competition is aimed at celebrating biodiversity in and invites you to submit your photo/s showing a native plant, bird or animal in your favourite local park, waterway or garden in the Canterbury area.
What a wonderful effort by 20 volunteers who turned out to Richard Murden Reserve on Sunday morning for the first working bee for 2012.
The volunteers, with GreenWay Biodiversity Officer Adam Ward, worked on the northern end of the site to pull out more than 12 bags of weeds that have popped up after the recent rain. The main weed busting was targeted to Bidens pilosa, blackberry night shade, Ehrharta erecta and Dandelion taraxacum.
A special welcome to all our new volunteers and welcome back to our regulars. Happy birthday to Chantelle who brought lots of friends along for a birthday bushcare session!
Are you interested in helping to conserve and enhance your local biodiversity? We're currently looking for input from interested local residents to be part of a community working group to help us develop a GreenWay Biodiversity Strategy.
You will have the opportunity to share your local knowledge on biodiversity issues and provide feedback on key objectives, strategies and actions to conserve and enhance biodiversity in the GreenWay corridor, and in the broader catchment area.
A big thank you to all of the volunteers who helped plant 490 native grasses, shrubs and climbers on National Tree Day, Sunday 31st August, at Richard Murden Reserve in Haberfield.
The next GreenWay Bushcare course on Saturday 6 August, Native Plant Identification, has been met with great demand, with 50 booking requests taken from local volunteers and community groups including the Mudcrabs and the Inner West Environment Group (although only 15 places were available).
