Greenweb helps property owners care for native habitats on their land.
The program aims to preserve bush habitats for the benefit of native flora and fauna. Schools are welcome to join in.
The program offers:
- free garden consultations
- educational talks
- planting days and bush regeneration

- suitable landscaping projects to encourage native fauna
- controlling invasive weeds
- other environmental or horticultural questions.
You may also be entitled to:
- free native tube plants from Council's Plant Nursery

You can also improve habitats for native wildlife in your backyard by:
- adding native plants to gardens
- removing invasive weeds
- installing nest boxes for native fauna
- retaining natural features such as logs or rocks.
