Field Trips and Outings explore members' gardens, local nature reserves, parks and regeneration areas. These are held on Sundays, every second month and last from 3 to 4 hours.


2 February  Sunday Field Trip

Organiser: Rob Watt and Bellinger Landcare

Meet at 9am, Bellingen Cemetery, Lyon Street


Join the Friends of Wonga Forest in helping to restore a vital link in koala habitat connecting koalas in Bongil Bongil National Park (behind the Bellingen township), to Bindarri and Dorrigo National Parks. Koalas have made the forests near Bellingen cemetery their home for decades, and we're excited to be part of a project helping to restore a key corridor for local koalas by removing weeds, planting primary food trees, restoring a patch of rare rainforest and learning as we go. We'd love you to come along, and learn about our iconic species and what we can do to help protect them. Join us on our journey to restore this beautiful forest!

Book Project: Growing Native Plants on the North Coast of NSW

First published in 2006, we are working on a Second Edition of this excellent resource for native plant enthusiasts and home gardeners.       


In 2018, our group will be monitoring selected local threatened or endangered species (from the NSW Environment Department's Saving Our Species register) by working with local National Parks regeneration projects around Moonee Beach, just north of Coffs Harbour. Once we have gained some experience in the techniques and methodology for data collection, we can extend our efforts to other species in our area. Our initial focus will be on two local species: Sophora tomentosa and Zieria prostrata.
