Bush Regeneration

Alan Newton Reserve Map

Bush regeneration is one of the most important things that Curl Curl Lagoon Friends do. By restoring the plant life, we enable more native wildlife to move into the area and make the Lagoon a more pleasant place for everyone to enjoy.

Our bush regeneration work is now focused on restoring Alan Newton Reserve. This area is located just to the west of Griffin Road on the north side of the Lagoon. Future work will continue the improvements along the Lagoon-edge riparian zone in the direction of the netball courts.

Volunteers meet on the first and third Saturday of each month from 8 to 11to remove invasive species, improve the soil and plant and encourage the growth of appropriate natives.

Lantana Removal

A new bush regeneration effort is in the planning phase that will focus on removing invasive lantana and restoring native vegetation and habitat in the dunes along Curl Curl Beach. This should begin towards the end of summer 2012-13, as the weather cools off.

How to Help

Volunteers receive free, brief training from Warringah Council. They get the chance to be part of an enjoyable team  and to make a lasting and visible difference in the Park that has been called the lungs of the Northern Beaches.
