Since 1971, we have advocated for the conservation of our local bushland. We’ve continued to stand by our values for over 50 years, representing environmental concerns in Lane Cove and beyond.
Twice a year in Spring and Autumn the Society holds a plant stall in Lane Cove Plaza to sell native seedlings and plants found in our local area, to create habitat and food for wildlife. Our experts help with selection and cultivation advice. We also highlight local environmental issues and the aims of the Society.
Join us in our meetings held every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7:00-8:45pm in the Lane Cove Library Meeting rooms, Longueville Rd (except January). Newcomers are always welcome!
We established the Bushkids programs which are now run by the Council and we have three permanent positions on the Council’s Bushland Management Advisory Committee (BMAC). Other activities include assisting in the publication of material relating to the natural environment in Lane Cove, informing residents of threats to the natural environment and writing submissions.
The Society is involved in all issues and campaigns relating to sustainability and the impact of development on the natural environment in the Lane Cove area. We keep an archive of all our submissions on our website. Current issues are highlighted below.
The Pathways aged care facilities at 4 Northwood Road (corner of Kenneth St) and 266 Longueville Road. In both cases the development is above the bushland surrounding the Lane Cove Golf Course.
The Sport and Recreation facility at the Golf Course, 180 River Road, will be the largest such development project proposed by Lane Cove Council. It will have a considerable impact on the local environment including the replacement of 80 mature trees by new plantings.
