Annual Bush Regen 2023

The Korinderie Bush Regen is on again, in the lands of the Bandjalang people.

This event is an important part of the communities effort to protect and maintain original ecosystems and threatened species. Activities include systematic woody weed control work – removing lantana in a team environment across a diversity of community types during the morning in exchange for delicious meals, bushland camp sites and opportunities for afternoon sightseeing or relaxing in the afternoon followed by great food and campfire conversation and music.

Korinderie Ridge has one of the more intact areas of Ironbark-Spotted Gum forest and associated ecosystems on the NSW east coast. The forest is home to the threatened brush-tailed phascogale and squirrel glider, vulnerable barking owl – along with hundreds of other animal and plant species. The land also includes protected gullies with coastal rainforest species.

Lantana is a serious threat to the integrity of the forests in this location (including the adjacent Bundjalung National Park) and the combined effort of community members and volunteers has completed the majority of the primary work at Korinderie sites over the last 18 years. Now, much of the work is follow up – although some primary work is still needed along a couple of the more remote creeks.

We usually get many returnees – but do really love to welcome people who have never been before, new students to bush regeneration and interested people. People with a botanical interests will no doubt find this area quite a delight to explore.

The regen in 2023 runs from
Wednesday 2 August till Sunday 6 August.
