Callala Bushcare Group volunteers work with Shoalhaven City Council to remove introduced weeds from Council owned or managed land in the Callala-Myola area and to promote regeneration of native bush. The Group has members from Callala Beach, Callala Bay and Myola and is supported by the Callala Beach and Callala Bay Progress Associations. The Group is a member of the Shoalhaven Landcare Association.
The Group's activities are focused on Callala Creek Bushland Reserve consisting of the foreshore reserve between the Callala Beach Fire Station and Callala Creek and both sides of Callala Creek between Callala Beach and Callala Bay.
The Group is also working sites in the Myola Foreshore Reserve between Callala Beach and Myola and at Boorawine Creek in Callala Bay. As well the Group is cooperating with the Jerrinja Local Aboriginal Land Council to look after a site on the left bank of Currambene Creek north of Myola Village. This site is Crown Land in the process of being transferred to Jerrinja ownership.
The Group runs educational programs to encourage residents not to grow certain exotic plants with a tendency to invade nearby bush, to dissuade people from dumping garden and other rubbish in the bush and to keep trail bikes away from sensitive environments.
Two hour working sessions are held every Tuesday and every second Monday commencing at 8am (9am in winter). Training is provided and volunteers are covered by Council's insurance.
