The Wangi Ridge Preservation Board was founded over 20 years ago and has received funding from Lake Macquarie City Council with an annual grant.

Garth Chapman, a long term member of the group, states the inspiration for starting the Wangi Ridge Preservation Board was simply “to protect the environment and maintain it for future generations.” The Landcare group greatly values the natural assets and also the cultural history of the site. Garth explains that the World War II gun emplacements on the site"are not a priority of the Landcare group, but out of respect forthose who served in the war, we hope they are preserved effectively, and we are happy to assist the Rathmines Air Base Committee or similar groups interested in restoring and protecting the site.”
