Make new friends, find out about being an environmental volunteer and the range of environmental programs available through Ku-ring-gai Council.
The Bush Neighbour Day is open to the public at Bicentennial Park West Pymble between 10.30am and 1.30pm, with a range of information, talks and displays on all aspects of living a sustainable life.
Council staff will be on hand to provide advice on programs including Pool to Pond which converts swimming pools into natural ponds and the Council’s native bee scheme, which distributes native bees and hives to local residents.
There will also be information about the wide range of rebates and grants available at Ku-ring-gai Council for residents to install energy saving devices and water smart pool pumps, plus the free Greenstyle advisory service on saving energy and planting sustainable gardens.
For those willing to donate a few hours a month, there will be information on how to join the 800 plus volunteers already working on a range of environmental projects in Ku-ring-gai.
To keep the children happy, there will also be displays of live native animals and didgeridoo performances.
Mayor Jennifer Anderson said the event was a great way to connect with other local residents and Ku-ring-gai’s environment.
“We’re thankful that Ku-ring-gai residents are so committed to preserving our natural environment and for those new to the area, this is a great way to find out about the help you can get through our Council.”
