FoCCS is a bush regeneration group that has been operating for close to 30 years. Not only are we restoring native bushland, but also creating wonderful friendships. Our group has members from all over the Cardinia Shire and the City of Casey. We work on bushland in the area bound by Beaconsfield-Emerald Road, Old Princes Highway, and Inglis Road. Our aim is to restore bushland providing native habits for our native animals, birds, reptiles, fish, etc.
For the Covid 19 years, we have had not had regular working bees, but still have managed to plant approximately eight hundred plants in this area in 2021.
New members are always welcome, and we need you. Many of the long term members who started the group have now retired. When I started, I knew nothing about what was native or indigenous or exotic plants. The wonderful long term members were great teachers, however the joys of the plant ID apps are good a thing to have now.
As we get close to Christmas we plan to have a get-together and rough out our plans for 2022. Keep your eyes on our Facebook page for details about this and future working bees:
Seasons greetings, and I look forward to meeting you.
