Are you looking for a new social activity in 2021? Do you like being outside in nature surrounded by our beautiful environment? Do you want to give some of your time to help make this part of the world an even more beautiful place? Well why not join Lennox Head Landcare? That’s what we’re all about and we’re always eager to meet new volunteers.
Lennox Head Landcare working bees are a great way to spend a couple of hours a week with a friendly bunch of people; there are always stimulating conversations, either during our two hour working bees or over a cuppa after the work is done, and you’ll learn a lot about the local environment from our vibrant and experienced team. You might even get your hands a little dirty.
Lennox Head Landcare started 20 years ago and some of our initial members remain passionate volunteers to this day. We operate on many different sites including Boulder Beach, the Seven Mile Beach dunes, around Lake Ainsworth, the reserve below Fig Tree Hill, Skennars headland and all over Lennox headland. We manage a wide variety of vegetation ecosystems from dune communities, wet and dry heath, swamps, grasslands and rainforest communities so there’s heaps of variety, it’s always fun, and you’ll learn lots of new things about the flora and fauna around Lennox Head.
Our crew are an interesting mob with varied vocational backgrounds. We represent a broad cross-section of the community and we all want to return a little to our wonderful community. Giving your time to help protect, preserve and repair our coastal reserves can be one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have.
We meet every Wednesday morning (sometimes on other days too, for special sites like the Bora Ring or water hyacinth clean-ups at the Lake) so please come along and join us. Becoming part of this friendly, relaxed and dedicated community group could be one of the best decisions you make in 2021—for yourself, your community and the local environment.
