Phils Forest was a secret bush regeneration project by Phil Knobbs and his family. They have been removing rubbish, weeding and planting trees such as casurinas, eucalypts, wattles and native grasses. Since 2002 the site has attracted a growing band of weeding warriors. Come along and meet the crew and help restore this important Hawkesbury river bank near the Richmond Bridge. Spend a beautiful day by the river, make new friends that will feel like family, and help restore this ancient riverbank.
Learn about the birds that can be found in river environments with special guest speaker Mark Fuller, from Cumberland Bird Observers and ABC Radio’s bird talk hour. Mark will be taking us through a guided bird walk as part of the day.
