Mosman Council Bushcare Program

What is Mosman Council’s Bushcare program?

Bushcare is an environmental program that is supported by Mosman Council. It aims to encourage the local community to get involved in the protection and restoration of urban bushland.

Mosman has about 39 hectares of bushland, most of which is part of Sydney Harbour National Park. This bushland is in fragments around the suburb, which means the bushland environment is more prone to impact from urbanisation.

This bushland is a habitat for a variety of native wildlife species and can suffer from vegetation vandalism and uncontrolled domestic animals, so it is important to protect and maintain the bushland environment.

How did the Lendi team help?

The Bushcare program gave the Lendi team the opportunity to think about shelter for wildlife.

The Bushcare program involves removing weeds, maintaining areas where weeds have been removed, protecting and creating the habitat for wildlife, replanting Indigenous species of trees in the bushland environment, and activities such as bank stabilisation.

The day began with a briefing on the importance of the program. Bushcare volunteers get to learn about ecology, as well as native plants and wildlife, while completing the Bushcare program. The Lendi team also learnt about weed removal techniques that can be applied to their own gardens.

Lendi planted 250 trees in 3 hours. Lendi then spent another hour picking up rubbish to help maintain the habitat.
