Glow Worn Glen Track
Glow Worm Glen Track Bushcare Group
In 1996 the Wingecarribee Shire Council conducted an assessment of the bushland of the Garland Road Reserve, which abuts the Glow Worm Glen Track. The Bushcare Group was set up in 1998, and is responsible to both the Shire and the Bundanoon Community Association (BCA) for the management, mainly of weeds, but also of the vegetation and general care of the Reserve. To give focus to this aim, a study was done and a Management Plan drawn up, reviewed by the members and adopted.
To ensure that the Group was on the right track, they sought funding for a study by a professional Ecologist. His reports essentially confirmed their approaches and lend weight to the Group’s views in any negotiations they might have with the Shire Council or Fire Authorities, etc. They also provided the Group with valuable additional information.
The study reinforced the view that the wetland area was a vital link in the protection of the National Park from invasion of undesirable plants and wastes from the adjacent residential area. For this reason visitation of this section of the area under management is discouraged.
All reports are available from the Convenor, as appendices to the Management Plan.
