Boundary Road Reserve
The Boundary Road Reserve Landcare Group is made up of a dedicated group of landcare and conservation volunteers who manage the Boundary Road Reserve.
The Reserve is comprised of about 85 hectares of ecologically endangered bushland. It borders on Blayney Road to the north; Boundary Road and the Bathurst Pistol Club to the west, the Blayney Common, Agricultural Farm and CSU to the east and the Archery Club and Hinton Road to the south.
Typical activities of the Boundary Reserve volunteers are:
- Managing/mowing the 4 km of walking track.
- Removing weeds and replanting indigenous trees, shrubs, grasses and forbs.
- We maintain track markers, and interpretive signs along the track, which inform walkers about different aspects of the Reserve.
- We have also placed seats around the track for those who wish to stop and do a spot of bird watching or just enjoy the tranquility of the bush. Regular repainting of the seats is another task undertaken.
- Prepare various plans including a Plan of Management, Fire Management Plan, Weed Control Strategy to manage the biodiversity of the land.
- Installing and monitoring nest boxes.
- Regular slashing of high grass around the perimeter of the Reserve and around our plantings.
