Welcome to IWEG
The Inner West Environment Group (IWEG) is a volunteer bushcare group that establishes 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 established 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 recently 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.
From July 2017, the Inner West Council will be coordinating the working bees at Johnson Park, Pigott St and Waratah Mills. IWEG is working with Council on all the details of that handover after they have nursed these sites for more than 10 years. Details of this change over are available from Victoria Currie, Team Leader – Biodiversity IWC, for more information on 9335 2254
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."
