Lane Cove’s beautiful bushland reserves need some extra help!!
An Educational Stroll with Lynne McLoughlin, author of the Natural Environment of Lane Cove and LCBCS member guides.
Learn about the issues facing many of Lane Cove’s reserves. Help call for an urgently needed increase to funding for BP and ALL bushland reserves in Council’s June ‘Budget’, to enable professional restoration of bush tracks and improved vegetation management.
The rain during the past three years combined with storms, has resulted in tree falls, track wash outs and rampant growth of both native and weed species. Council and volunteer bush regenerators are unable to keep pace with the needs of Lane Cove’s many beautiful reserves. Help call for an urgently needed increase to funding for bushland in Council’s June Budget.
|Write a short email before Wednesday 7 June (close of consultation) to encourage Council to increase the funding allocation for reserves.

Issues Evident in Bushland Park
- bracken smothering areas of the endangered hygrocybeae fungal communities
- proliferation of palms – not native to the area
- smothering by vines
- track subsidence and tree falls resulting in closure of the Doug Stuart Bushwalk
- Sydney Water’s ugly gabion stabilization wall
History of Lane Cove Bushland Park
We can enjoy this beautiful bushland today because a group of concerned residents saved it from destruction in 1971 when the Country Club planned to extend the golf course into this valley. This was the genesis of the Lane Cove Bushland & Conservation Society.
