The Local's Landcare Program

Who are the Landcare Crew

The CPPA Landcare crew have been caring for the public bushland reserves along the Coal Point Peninsula since 1995. We are a committed crew and are one of the longest running and geographically largest groups in the city. There's a great summary of our activities in the CPPA Landcare Sites Case Study booklet.

Where and When we landcare


There is landcaring happening in one of our  local reserves every Thursday from 8am-noon Morning tea is at 10am. Tools and socialising are provided. If you would like to be on the weekly email that lets you know where the group will be and what we'll be doing please email

Regular landcaring also happens at Crocodile Point the area around the Fennel Bay Bridge, west of the Lions Park.  Meet under the Fennel Bay Bridge on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. 8:30am-10am.

COVID and other lurgies are still with us

  • Stay at home if unwell


To get around to all the reserves we have a dynamic roster. We're trying a new rotation, which allows for a 15 week return cycle. We'll see if that keeps the weeds under control.

The most accurate calendar of landcare activities can be found on this blog's calendar of events, it provides the site locations.  The Calendar below is our plan for the rest of the year which does get revised from time to time.

How of landcare.

Many of the weeds we deal with and the techniques we use can be found in the Bonza Bushland Gardening guide.

Our landcare activities are guided by Action Plans that have been developed by the LMCC Landcare Resource Centre, who provide permission on behalf of Council to landcare on the public land.

What treasures are on the Landcare sites?

You can find about about the local plants on this page - the Plants in our Bigger Backyard.
