Many thanks to those 25 souls who came along to the 2019 North Arm Cove Clean Up Australia event on the weekend of the 2nd  and 3rd of March.  We all are also grateful to those that pick up through the year, even though they can’t make it on the day. It was a fine day and a fine turn out.

If you are not sure of weeds listed in this area you can access a weed list on the MCC website Weed Management .

The recent letter I received from the DPI did not address all the concerns regarding the changes to Logging Laws.

Logging law changes in NSW will lead to increased harvesting including old growth trees, and bigger areas of clearing. The DPI proposes to use residue timber for fuelling power stations including one at Buladelah.

The ABC investigation provides a thorough unpacking of the impact of the new laws.
