Bush Regeneration to Cover all Projects Under $2000
Small Grants – What is the aim?
The Pittwater Environmental Foundation is keen to support the efforts of local groups in preserving and protecting Pittwater’s bushland by responding to requests from local groups for funding for specific local outcomes.
The Pittwater Environmental Foundation has supported two local bush regeneration groups – Rocky Point Bush Care, and the Pittwater Youth Hostel Events to remove asparagus fern and crofton weed.
The residences fringing the lower western shores of Pittwater back onto Ku ring gai Chase National Park. This original pre European forest is a part of the nation’s natural heritage and removing weeds from slopes of the foreshore is crucial to retaining this timeless forest landscape and habitat.
Who funds it?
‘The small grants are funded by generous local resident donations, grants from the Hawkesbury Nepean Catchment Management Authority and by the Foundation.
Can I help?
‘There are many ways to help. Bequests and donations remain our primary source of funding. Becoming part of a bushcare group on site or joining in the community planting days are another way of contributing directly to the success of this project. Finally, simply appreciating the work by enjoying a walk or birdwatching through this bushland is a great start to supporting the work and the benefits for us all.
