Rocky Point, Western Foreshores

The Rocky Point Bushcare group was set up in 2003 by Rocky Point residents and weekenders keen to restore local pockets of degraded public land to their natural state. The group was supported by Council who continue to provide an experienced bush regenerator to work with the group and a full range of tools. In addition Council has provided hundreds of native tube stock to supplement the existing seed bank. They have also partnered Council in two successful applications for state and federal funding, allowing them to take on additional experienced workers and update their tool kit.
