A New Book titled “Decades of Healing” (the Popes Glen Bushcare Group Story) has now been published.

decades-of-healing-front-cover-finalThis is the inspiring story of how the Popes Glen Bushcare Group, supported by their local Council and grants from the Environmental Trust of NSW, turned a highly degraded peri-urban creek, silt flat and willow forest into a wetland filled with native vegetation, birds and frogs – a thriving Blue Mountains Swamp.

With over 100 pages of informative descriptions and photographs “Decades of Healing” details how commitment, patience and adaptive management were used to tackle a seemingly impossible challenge and bring about environmental change.

“The project is a great demonstration of the influence that community champions and volunteers can have on effecting positive environmental change… this project continues to exceed expectations…”
Project Reviewer for the Environmental Trust of New South Wales.
