Volunteers are needed for the annual bush regeneration camp to be held from April 3 to 8 at beautiful Kylies Beach in Crowdy Bay National Park.

The camp is run by volunteers from the National Parks Association, Mid North Coast Branch which has been running bush regeneration activities in the park for 39 years, and the National Parks Service. 

Volunteers are welcome to come for just a day or for however long they can make it and work at their own pace and ability. There is time to swim and relax.

In 2013 a severe bushfire affected the southern park section resulting in mass germination of bitou bush, undoing years of work.

Thankfully the NSW Environmental Trust came to the rescue with a three-year grant of $97,000. A contractor was employed with resulting fantastic success.

So most of the hard work is already done in this area; the main role now is the vitally important follow up plus of previously worked sites such as magnificent Diamond Head.

The use of a trailer fully equipped with cooking and eating gear etc. and tables set up under a tarpaulin makes camping easy.  A barbecue is provided on the Saturday night.

Phone Sue on 6559 7134 for further information and to book in.

Kylies Beach is 45 minutes north of Taree and 15 minutes south of Laurieton.
