Permbulation & Bushcare Annandale-Leichhardt-Haberfield

Image
Walked down to the end of Annandale Street and caught the light rail at Rozelle Bay Station.

While waiting for the Tram checked out Westconnex destruction of trees in Buruwan Park.

Also noticed an impressive specimen of Grevillea longifolia (red flowers and saw tooth leaves)

Alighting at Leichhardt North, walked along Blackmore Oval where a new shared path is being constructed.


 Joined volunteers doing bushcare in Richard Murden Reserve.

We pulled out the weeds which were thriving and full of seeds.

But at the same time noticed that there were a lot of the local provenance plants that had been put in hanging in there and in the case of two ground covers  holding their own.
Interested in getting involved in Bushcare?No experience is required - all you need to bring is a hat and water, wear suitable clothing and sturdy shoes. A site supervisor will be there to get you started and will provide gloves, tools and morning tea....https://www.innerwest.nsw.gov.au/live/environment-and-susta…

undertake traffic modelling to identify potentially-affected streets, and develop a WestConnex Local Area Improvement Strategy (LAIS) to protect these streets. 8 May 2018: C0518 Item 4      WestConnex Local Area Improvement Strategy
Motion: (Drury/McKenna OAM)
THAT Council:
1. Adopts the draft WestConnex Local Area Improvement Strategy (LAIS); and

2. Writes to the Minister for Roads and other relevant ministers, forwarding the         adopted LAIS with a request for funding of proposed LAIS works. Council to     argue that Roads & Maritime Services (RMS) funding is justified as the need for     these works is a direct result of WestConnex.

Council remains opposed to all stages of WestConnex,      preferring public transport solutions to Sydney’s tr…
