  • Campaigning against inappropriate tree removal and other environmental damage in our suburbs.
  • Providing environmentally-focused feedback to local Councils on significant developments and management plans.
  • Publishing educational materials including Birds of Oatley Park, Native Plants of Oatley and producing a monthly newsletter to keep members informed about local environmental issues, as well as conservation issues in the wider community.
  • Supporting environmental campaigns, such as conservation of urban bushland and protection of the Georges River catchment.
  • Making representations to Members of Parliament on important local environmental issues.
  • Investigating and reporting environmental problems such as pollution and habitat destruction.
