North Head Bushcare Open Day
August 11, 2011
The North Head Bushcare Group will be hosting a guided tour of the iconic Ulladulla Headland from 10am Friday 19 August after the previous Open Day was cancelled due to poor weather.
An extremely popular recreational space, the North Head Bushcare group work to regenerate the native bushland and keep the headland free from rubbish.
North Head Bushcare Coordinator, Peter Loyd said he was hoping the rescheduled open day will help attract new members to the organisation saying the group was looking for assistance in regenerating bushland on and around North Head.
“The headland has unique patches of heath vegetation that has a high diversity of local coastal species growing on it which makes the headland quite special in regard to the region’s vegetation,” said Mr Loyd.
“The recent burn on the headland has assisted in the regeneration of much of these heath species but some assistance is needed in removing weeds and monitoring the regeneration.”
Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Paul Green said while it was disappointing the original Open Day was cancelled he was encouraging residents in the Ulladulla – Milton area to become involved in the regeneration project.
“It goes without saying that Bushcare groups provide a fantastic service in carrying out vital regeneration work right throughout the City,” said Clr Green.
“North Head is an extremely iconic and popular destination with the local community using the area for fitness, fishing and relaxation purposes.
“I would encourage all residents with an interest in North Head or regeneration works to get along to the upcoming open day and consider joining what is a very valuable organisation.”
