About this Event

Are you a young person that loves getting outside? Want to get your hands dirty caring for local bushland? Greater Sydney Landcare Network and Northern Beaches Council Bushcare are heading to the beach!

For this April event we’ll be heading to the Northern Beaches to take out invasive weeds that are threatening our coastal ecosystems. In the afternoon you’ll be guided along a rock platform at low tide to enjoy ocean views and check out what marine life is living in the pools.

So, if you’ve always been keen to make a difference but weren’t sure where to start, or just want to have a chill day and meet some like-minded peeps, now’s your chance to get involved.

On-site training, PPE, lunch, and morning tea are provided.

Please wear long sleeves, long pants, closed sturdy shoes and a hat / sunscreen, and bring at least 2 litres of drinking water. Feel free to bring your bathers and a towel if you’re keen for a swim in the afternoon.

RSVPs are essential so to avoid disappointment register here ASAP.

Instructions on location and exact meeting point will be provided to those who have registered. For more information contact Elisha at 4724 2147 or elisha.duxbury@greatersydneylandcare.org.

While this event is primarily to support and encourage young people aged late teens to thirty-something years old, we always invite diversity of demographics. However, for insurance purposes you must be over 13 years old and accompanied by an adult if you are under 16.

Please be advised you will need a reasonable level of fitness to attend this project. Some rock platform areas are slippery and unstable under foot.

We acknowledge and pay our respects to the Traditional Custodians of this land.

This project is supported by the Australian Government using funds from their Community Environment Programme.
