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
For more information on how to support our Bushland Reserves, visit the Bush Neighbours Guide page and download the Bush Neighbours brochure.
