Thirty people helped us Bring the buzz back to the Cumberland Plain Woodland at Atlantic Boulevard Reserve in Glenfield. We planted 400 plants which will become vital resources for local pollinators. All species that we planted were native to the Cumberland Plain Woodland.
Landholders along the Illawarra Escarpment have an opportunity participate in a wildlife survey to find out ‘Who’s living on my land?’. Landholders participating in the Who’s living on my land? survey will get a chance to learn how to use and borrow an infrared camera to survey their property for native and pest animals.

We have been having an un-BEE-lieveable time with 60 students from Harrington Park Public School! As part of our new project, Bringing Back the Buzz to the Cumberland Plain Woodland, we piloted new lessons to inspire the next generation of conservationists to consider the role of native flowers and their pollinators in the ecosystem.
After treating their mum to a lovely breakfast in bed, local families helped plant 500 trees in Spring Farm bushland corridor on Mothers’ Day.
“Planting a tree for mum is one of the most beautiful presents a family can give,” says Margot Law, Citizen Science Officer at the National Parks Association of NSW. “It’s a lovely tribute for the strength, support and love of mums and a gift that plays a vital role in restoring the ecosystem.”
On the morning of Tuesday 21st March, local residents of northern Sydney will head to the Field of Mars Reserve, East Ryde, to see if they can find local water dragons and help with water quality testing and bush regeneration.
The Dragons of Sydney project is an initiative run by the National Parks Association of NSW (NPA) in partnership with Macquarie University to conserve Sydney’s urban Water Dragons through revegetation and citizen science.
