Welcome to IWEG
The Inner West Environment Group (IWEG) is a volunteer bushcare group that established and maintains sites along a corridor that links the Cooks River and Iron Cove through the inner western Sydney suburbs of Hurlstone Park, Dulwich Hill, Lewisham, Summer Hill, Haberfield and Leichhardt.
The group has volunteers at four sites along the rail corridor at Dulwich Hill – at the ends of Davis, Pigott and Little streets and beside the Waratah Mills apartment block. Waratah Mills was split and Johnson Park was created.
IWEG were instrumental in the creation of sites at Cadigal Reserve, Summer Hill; Lords Rd, Leichhardt; and Richard Murden Reserve, Haberfield. Cadigal Reserve and Richard Murden Reserve are now maintained by Greenway Bushcare.
Anybody who wants to connect with nature, their local community and other people is welcome to join us. It is fun and there are many ways you can get involved.
The Inner West Council coordinates the working bees at Johnson Park, Pigott St and Waratah Mills. Details are available from Adam Ward, Senior Ecology Volunteers and Project Officer, for more information on 9392 5865.
A conductor on the light rail was overheard to say, "What I like about my job is being able to look out the windows and see the trees."
IWEG's long awaited A Photo Guide to the Birds of the GreenWay is now available for downloading here. Learn how to identify birds along the GreenWay, how to create a small bird refuge in your own garden and tips for Bird watching.
