Helensburgh and District Landcare Group
Thanks to Merilyn House.
You don’t have to wait until Spring to see native wildflowers.
Winter is the perfect time to go for a bush walk, with banksia, heath plants and wattles currently in flower, as well as many ground orchids.
Helensburgh and District Landcare Group members are motivated by a love of the local bushland. They have been working for more than 20 years to control invasive weeds, including Madeira Vine, Morning Glory and Asparagus Fern.
These environmental weeds are in our gardens and on our footpaths, and can easily spread into local bushland.
One of the aims of the Helensburgh and District Landcare Group is to educate residents about weeds they may be unaware of which are growing in their gardens or nature strips.
Even if you’re unable to commit to joining the Landcare Group, we ask you make yourself aware of what’s actually growing in your garden and remove any plant which is a potential threat to our local bushland.
The group always welcomes new volunteers.
