Community Conservation Network

Community Conservation Network


Several 'friends of' groups exist in Bunbury and have been helping the City to manage its reserves for many years.  These groups are collectively called the ‘Community Conservation Network’. As well as strengthening these groups, the City is always seeking volunteers to help establish new groups.


Activities that 'friends of' groups may be involved with include photography, propagating plants, collecting native seed, surveying local flora or fauna, protecting threatened flora and ecological communities, planting, or most importantly of all weeding.


Current ‘Friends Of’ groups in Bunbury include:

·       Friends of Big Swamp

·       Friends of Manea Park

·       Stewards of Katherine Chauhan Reserve

·       Friends of Hartley Anderson Reserve.
