Orara Reserve & The Beach School

Bushlink have been working on this project since 2012 in partnership with The Beach School, The SIsters of Charity Foundation and the Save Manly Dam Catchment Committee. The Bushlink teams restore remnant bushland in the core area of good bush with noxious and environmental weeds scattered throughout. Including Fishbone fern, Lantana, Cottoneaster, Pampas grass among others This Open Eucalypt Woodland/Forest has an area of threatened species Acacia terminalis subsp. terminalis. The aims of work are to improve the resilience and biodiversity of the site, to work with the disengaged students who attend The Beach School and to promote positive attitudes of the school within the local community.
