OFFERS FREE BEDS FOR GREEN HEARTS
Pittwater YHA opens its
doors to green-hearted and green-thumbed guests who'll save the
gorgeous Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park from imminent asparagus fern
invasion. Yes, seriously.
WHAT IS IT?
Bush Regeneration sees eco-conscious, kind hearted humans restore and
rehabilitate the gorgeous, sprawling Aussie bush from its
weed-infested, degraded state into a healthy, thriving plant community,
which will prosper and delight forevermore. Far from just weed removal;
Regenerators focus on habitat, drainage, weed sources and establishing
native communities. These are big words which probably don’t make much
sense – but we have an interactive learning opportunity for you!
WHERE IS IT?
Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, Sydney’s protected north coast, is
home to rock engravings, red ochre rock paintings, the fuzziest
wildlife you ever did see and
the most breathtaking views a Sydneysider or visitor could comprehend;
and is currently under threat from
invasive asparagus fern; which needs removing. Who knew your Aunty’s
fave veggie could be so aggressive?
ALRIGHT - SIGN ME UP!
The blissed-out, babbling-brooked, spectacular-viewed, fresh-aired
oasis that is our Pittwater YHA, alongside the Northern Beaches
Council, are offering you fine green-thumbed and hearted folk the
opportunity to volunteer alongside professional Regenerators for a weekend of Pittwater Restoration from May
11 – 13, 2018. Spend two mornings of tending to the gorgeous
surrounds and you’ll be rewarded with two nights’ accommodation, two
days of meals (morning teas, BBQ lunches and evening dinners) and kayak
use throughout your stay. Plus, you’ll be chuffed with yourself for
doing your bit for the planet and our futures.
Along with your towels, two sheets, a pillowcase and, sturdy shoes,
sunscreen and your breakfasts; you’ll need a $20 contribution for the
weekend. For all the T&Cs; head to Pittwater YHA, shoot them an email or give them a ring on
