For over 15 years Georges Hall resident Richard Kolodzies has volunteered his time to help sustain the 400 hectares of natural landscape in Canterbury-Bankstown.

Richard with a number of other local residents have rolled up their sleeves and taken part in Council’s bushcare volunteer program, lending a hand to conserve the City’s natural environment.

"Our environment is a scarce resource, so it is crucial to take good care of it."

"Everything has a purpose in the environment and it is important to maintain what we’ve got," Richard said.

"I’ve been a bushcare volunteer for over 15 years now, because it is rewarding to see improvements in the habitats I’ve worked on," he said. "Volunteering is one of those things that brings a sense of satisfaction.

Mayor Khal Asfour said today’s way of living can be harmful on the environment, which is why we must take added precautions to protect it.

"Canterbury-Bankstown’s terrain is diverse and unique, more the reason to sustain its beauty," he said.

"Our natural environment is important for stabilising soil, improving water quality and providing valuable habitats for our native wildlife.

"Volunteers are currently needed to help remove weeds, plant native vegetation and maintain wetlands in various areas.

"The more people who help, the more work we can get done – and that will ensure our local environment thrives."
