Issues of Concern to the Community
The Bushland’s survival to the 1990s was more an accident of history rather than good land-use planning. Its survival from the 1990s through to today, however, has undoubtedly been the result of strong community action. Local residents have fought to ensure that the Bushland’s survival will no longer be subject to the pressures of those who would see houses and roads as its inevitable destiny.
Currently the Friends are seeking to safeguard the future of three plants and twelve animals in the Creek Bushland.
the Bomaderry Zieria, unique to Bomaderry Creek; the Nowra Mallee; and the Brittle Midge Orchid.
