We know the native plantings along the light rail corridor makes for a more pleasant trip to for commuters, whether they be those going to and from work or day trippers exploring the inner west. IWEG is therefore encouraging the Light Rail operator, TransDev, to promote the bush care groups.
The fortnightly Wednesday working bee at the Johnson Park site has proved a success with a significant reduction in the levels of weeds. A frog pond is planned for construction this year (2016/17).
The study has now commenced. See the Bandicoot page for more details.
More Bushcare Sites
Also as part of the Transport for NSW environmental impact offset project, a number of new bushcare sites will be created in 2015, once these are established, IWEG are expecting to manage three of these. They are at Hercules Street (across the line from Dulwich Hill Public School), Little Street (Dulwich Hill) and Fred Street (Lewisham).
