Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves

The Friends of Woorabinda Bushland Reserves help to maintain and improve four Adelaide Hills Council reserves.

The  linked reserves -- Stirling Park, Woorabinda, Hender and Madurta - cover 34 hectares in the heart of the Stirling/Heathfield district.  Woorabinda lake is perhaps best known feature, but habitats vary from open grassland to eucalypt forest and natural bushland. They are home to a wide variety of birds, as well as koalas, southern brown bandicoots, kangaroos and sundry reptiles.  Not to mention native orchids and other flowering plants and shrubs.

The reserves have been assessed as having some of the highest biodiversity  of anywhere in the AHC  area. The State Government recently approved a Natural Vegetation Heritage Agreement, protecting the reserves in perpetuity.

You are very welcome to join us to help us keep it that way! It's a great excuse to take some time out in beautiful surroundings.

We normally have bushcare working bees from 9am to 11am every third Sunday and every last Thursday of the month.  Locations vary, so get in touch:  email us at  woorabinda@internode.on.net

Trees Please! Landcare Hahndorf

Trees Please!

Landcare Hahndorf

Trees Please! aims to protect the remnant native bush at The Cedars (which is being destroyed by woody weeds like broom, gorse and blackberry), and to re-vegetate the area with local native trees and shrubs. The Cedars is the home of the late Sir Hans Heysen (near Hahndorf). 

 

Trees Please! volunteers work every Thursday morning from 10am till mid day (weather permitting), and after the work there's a famous shared picnic (it's not all work!)

 

  • Most of our work involves removing woody weeds but we also collect seed from the   remnant native vegetation. Seedlings are then raised from the seed we've collected   and planted out during special tree planting days in late Winter.
