Community

 

The society keeps an eye out for any developments occurring in and around the Riverlea area that may have an environmental impact. We’ve successfully campaigned for the zoning to be changed in the Riverlea Industrial Area to preclude noxious or offensive businesses setting up there.

Much of our work is now focused on restoring the bush in Hammond Park. We hold monthly working bees, usually on the last Saturday of every month from 1-3 pm, and everybody, including those from outside Riverlea, is welcome to come along. They are an excellent way to improve your knowledge of ecology, weed control and bush restoration. You also get some exercise, and it’s an enjoyable social time, too.

We also welcome groups of any age, whether it be scouts or senior citizens, who want to join our working bees. We have signs at either end of the Hammond bush walkway that are kept updated with details of the next working bee. The events are also on our Facebook page.

Please email us on riverlea.soc@gmail.com  if you wish to be on our email list to be notified of working bees and any other happenings in the community.

We also deliver a newsletter to every house in the Riverlea area two or three times a year. These can be viewed on our newsletters page.
