Decades of Healing: Wasteland to Wetland

This is the inspiring story of how the Popes Glen Bushcare Group, supported by their local Council and grants from the Environmental Trust of NSW, turned a highly degraded peri-urban creek, silt flat and willow forest into a wetland filled with native vegetation, birds and frogs – a thriving Blue Mountains Swamp.

With over 100 pages of informative descriptions and photographs “Decades of Healing” details how commitment, patience and adaptive management were used to tackle a seemingly impossible challenge and bring about environmental change.

The project is a great demonstration of the influence that community champions and volunteers can have on effecting positive environmental change… this project continues to exceed expectations…”
