Get Your Hands Dirty | Living on the Edge

September 19 @ 10:00 am - September 20 @ 2:00 pm

Free

Greater Sydney Landcare Network and Central Tablelands Local Land Services have teamed up to offer this epic adventure Landcare escape.

This event intends to give young people aged 18 to 30-something the opportunity to take action to restore bushland in the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area and connect with like-minded people who are passionate about habitat and biodiversity. On this 2-day adventure, we’ll be journeying out to Capertee Valley where we’ll be removing weeds and camping at the local campsite. On the second day, we’ll be taken on a guided hike to Freshwater Creek to learn about the history of the landscape.

So, if you’ve always been keen to make a difference but weren’t sure where to start, or just want a weekend in the bush with some like-minded peeps, now’s your chance to get involved.

On-site training and tools are provided.
For the weekend we will need you to bring,
– long sleeved shirt and long pants for Landcare activities on day 1
– sturdy closed toe shoes
– gardening gloves
– a hat / sunscreen
– sunglasses
– water bottle and 1-2 litres drinking water
– camping gear (tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag, etc.)

Due to COVID-19 we will need you to bring your own food, snacks, and cooking equipment for the weekend. It is also recommended that you provide your own transportation to the campsite. However, we can provide limited lifts from Lithgow.

There are toilet and shower facilities available at the campsite where we’ll be staying.

We aim to kick things off at 10.30AM on Saturday and wrap things up by 2PM on Sunday to leave time for travel back to Lithgow or Sydney.

RSVPs are essential so to avoid disappointment register asap HERE:
