Bushland Reserves in Knox

Bush Neighbours Guide

The City of Knox has over 70 bushland reserves that enhance the landscape character of the municipality. These reserves also contribute to our local biodiversity.

We all have a responsibility to care for our local bushland reserves in order to support habitat for local wildlife and conserve local biodiversity.

The Knox Council Biodiversity team manages and monitors many of the bushland reserves using contemporary bushland management practices to control environmental weeds and support regeneration of the vegetation in order for the community to enjoy.

Local Friends Groups also provide considerable time and effort in supporting management of these reserves and educating the community on the value of these sites.

Connecting to nature provides positive health and wellbeing outcomes and as such, the conservation of these reserves is valuable for the community and for future generations.

Local residents can contribute to our bushland reserves by joining the free Gardens for Wildlife Program

Do you live near a bushland reserve?

Indigenous vegetation is extremely fragmented in urban areas. Some municipalities have very little remnant vegetation and most sites are also isolated from one another by residential, industrial and former agricultural uses.

Once a part of a vast natural landscape that stretched right across the continent, many of our bushland reserves are now islands in a sea of houses.

'Bush Neighbours' is a guide to understanding, enjoying and protecting our wonderful natural bushland areas. As a bush neighbour, you are in a special position to know and enjoy our wonderful natural areas and to help them through the changes they face as part of an urban landscape. It also means you hold the key to their protection.
