  • The Blue Mountains are surrounded by bushland and it is important that we protect the land around us. Involve yourself with Bushcare, and help promote ecologically sound management of your local bushland.
  • Are you interested in sustainable schools, and educating our children about the environment? If so, then check out our Schools Program site.
  • Learn about sustainable landscaping through our Mountain Landscape page. You can change your immediate environment with minimal negative impacts on the existing landscape.
  • Work together with your local community for Living Streams, and healthy catchments.
  • Biodiversity is about the web of life - it's all connected. It's all important.

Every village of the Blue Mountains has a Bushcare or Landcare Group or people involved in Bush Backyards. Depending on what area of the mountains that you live in, you may be interested in environmental projects focussing on:

  • Aquatic weed removal from Glenbrook Lagoon.

  • Community participation in environmental activities in North Katoomba
