Bushcare is a Council volunteer activity caring for bushland on land owned or controlled by Council.
Berrima Bushcare meets on the first Monday morning of every month and works around the village and along the heritage walks along the River to restore native vegetation.
New volunteers most welcome. If you want to learn about bush regeneration and have the time to spare come along and enjoy meeting like minded locals. Training in using equipment and supplies is all part of what Bushcare offers. It is also great exercise.
The local Berrima Bushcare group met on Monday 5 September, working from 9am to 12 noon, on the riverbank opposite the rear of the houses at the eastern end of Wingecarribee Street (accessed from Oldbury Street). They continued to clear the infestation of privet and other “woody weeds”. This area had been cleared of woody weeds some years ago, but in recent years theyhave re-emerged, often from root systems left in the ground, but most commonly from seeds left in the soil. The group is making good progress and there is a marked difference from when works started several months ago.
