Rocky Point Bush Care
This group works to restore the Pittwater Spotted Gum Forest on Rocky Point Reserve and road reserves, and the south west Lovett Bay Beach slopes. They have been meeting every Monday since 2003.
We are an eclectic bunch ranging from those who know everything about the bush to those who know nothing; those who have been here 40 minutes to those who have been here 40 years; those who walk our tracks and clamber up trees for the view, to those who have to sit down to weed. Starting with just 4 residents our numbers have swelled to insure it always feels like party time at morning tea.
As a Northern Beaches Council backed bushcare group all newcomers to Rocky Point Bushcare are offered a tool belt, shirt with weed sacks also provided onsite. If you think this might be for you – give us a call. We’d love to see you.

Start date for 2021: January 2021
