Bracken Rd Reserve Group

The Bracken Rd Reserve Group has been working on a piece of Roadside Reserve remnant bushland since 2017. We are a group dedicated to enhancing local biodiversity through weed management using minimal disturbance techniques. Re-vegetation using local species is being used where weed invasion has been significant.

Volunteer With Us!

We welcome all volunteers. Whatever your age, skill level, knowledge or time commitment, you can get involved. We willingly share our skills and knowledge with you. 

Contact Peter on 0412529465 or pjallen@esc.net.au to find out more about the Bracken Rd Reserve Group and volunteering with us.

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

Hills Biodiversity Incorporated

Mobilising to prevent species loss

 

We often hear about species on the brink of extinction or the climate on the brink of collapse – and this sounds quite daunting and hopeless.  


However, community and landholders can work together to push back that brink!

 

Get Involved

 

Are you time-poor and still want to contribute to improving biodiversity in the Hills?

 

We get together for about 2 hours per month on the third Sunday of the month at 9am - no commitment, attend as many events as you want. We plant and/or weed, then enjoy a light lunch washed down with a drink of your choice.

 

It's a great way to meet and chat with like-minded people, and connect yourself with the local community. Find out more by contacting Warren on 0408 444 592.

Connecting landholders and volunteers to enhance the biodiversity of the Adelaide Hills.

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.
