Event description

Description

Join Council's Bushcare volunteers and staff on a bushwalk through the Yaralla Bushcare site. Topics that will be covered on the tour include:

  • Habitat management and fauna monitoring

  • Basic native plant identification

  • Weed management

  • Bush regeneration techniques

  • Bushcare and the Big Picture

The City of Canada Bay contains a number of small, highly valuable remnants of the endangered ecological community 'Sydney Turpentine Ironbark Forest' (STIF). This vegetation community, which forms part of the Cumberland Plain Woodland complex, has less than 5% of the original area remaining. The most intact and floristically diverse example of STIF is found on the Department of Health owned Yaralla Estate in Concord West.

Council has been working together with the Sydney Local Health District to ensure the ongoing protection of this important bushland remnant.

*This workshop is hosted by City of Canada Bay Council as part of the Treading Lightly program.
