Nardoo Hills community engagment in action

on 03 Mar 2015 

On Saturday our Nardoo Hills Reserve Manager, Jeroen Van Veen, and Bush Heritage volunteers Alison Pernek and Eve Pawlik, showcased all things Bush Heritage at the Macedon Ranges Sustainable Living Festival.

This festival had over 50 exhibitors showcasing diverse products and services, including sustainable living advisory services, the Youth Climate Coalition, environmental job creation services, sustainable engineering and architectural firms and the Macedon Ranges Community Exchange to name but a few.

Our team spoke to individuals and groups about the work of Bush Heritage both within our local communities and at our reserves and offered information about how to get involved.

Jeroen has been central in developing the Nardoo Hills weeding bees that bring together a group of volunteers over a weekend in order to protect indigenous plants including the rare Northern Golden Moths orchid and Robust Greenhood orchid from invasive weed species.

We're currently recruiting for the May (30th and 31st) and June (20th and 21st) weekends and you can register your interest by contacting

Bush Heritage Australia each year undertakes numerous local community events like this and we're always honoured to be supported by our volunteers. Who better to talk about the work of our volunteers than the volunteers themselves?

 Thanks again to Jeroen, Alison and Eve for a wonderful event!
