Backyard Bushcare is about making sure that what happens in our backyards protects the natural environment that we all love. It is for anyone with a backyard, but especially for those living in our urban areas.
Did you know that 65% of weed species invading our bushland across Australia started as ordinary garden plants?
A few simple measures can make sure your backyard helps to protect wildlife and the surrounding bushland.
Pacific Palms Backyard Bushcare
Council has received assistance through the NSW Government’s Environmental Trust to run a targeted Backyard Bushcare program in Pacific Palms from 2017-2020. This project will complement current bush regeneration efforts in that area, focusing on garden plants that have escaped our backyards to invade local bushland areas. There will be a range of activities undertaken to assess what plants need to be targeted, to help everyone control them, and promote an appreciation for the Pacific Palms bushland!
