The Cessna Reserve Environment Group commenced in October 2016 and conducts activities within an area of remnant Cumberland Plain Woodland. Activities conducted by volunteers include tree planting, weed removal and litter removal.
The Cessna Reserve Environment Group is assisting to deliver the “Bringing Back the Buzz to Cumberland Plain Woodland” project. This project is managed by the National Park Association of NSW Inc. in partnership with the University of Sydney, Liverpool City Council, Camden Council and Campbelltown Council and has been assisted by the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust funding. Land clearing in Western Sydney has reduced the Cumberland Plain Woodland to less than 10 per cent of its original distribution and considerable efforts are being put into restoring this critically endangered ecological community. This project aims to restore pollinators back onto these sites by undertaking bush regeneration activities, installing nesting sites and planting native flowering plant species suitable for native pollinators such as bees and butterflies.
