Volunteer park carers from seven groups in Belconnen will showcase the beauty of Canberra’s close-by bushland and grasslands in their annual photographic display at Jamison Plaza 8 to 10 September, 9.00am to 4.30pm.

Park Care Friends will explain how they bring back biodiversity to the bush in the “Bush Capital”; including erosion control, track maintenance, weeding, tree shrub and understorey planting, citizen science, education programs and workshops, GPS tagging rabbit burrows, and reducing Common Mynah Bird population.

This display has been an annual event by enthusiastic ecologists, conservationists and citizen scientists in association with the ACT Government's Parks and Conservation Service for about 10 years.

The groups that are participating this year are:

  • Canberra India Mynah Action Group (CIMAG)
  • Friends of Aranda Bushland
  • Friends of Grasslands
  • Friends of Black Mountain
  • Friends of Mt Painter (near Cook and Macquarie suburbs)
  • Friends of The Pinnacle (near Waramanga and Hawker suburbs)
  • Ginninderra Catchment Group
