Our web site explains and documents
our objectives and progress. The most recent update was in November 2015.
We are working to improve our photo gallery by providing better
coverage of plant and weed species, more scenery pictures, and google earth "flyovers".
South West Rocks Dune Care (SWRDC)
is an enthusiastic community-based organisation, with over 20 years experience,
which undertakes environmental restoration work around South West Rocks,
on the Mid-North Coast of NSW Australia.
We operate across multiple land tenures and work closely
with the National Parks staff and Kempsey Shire Council.
We are successfully eliminating invasive weeds and encouraging the return of
native plants, and the animals that depend on them.
Please support our regeneration work by bringing yourself or a group
along to SWR to experience the beautiful coastline, see what we have done,
and contribute a few hours time. Promote our group to your friends, local bushcare groups, and council.
Your contribution will be welcome.

Between 2004-2014 we received, grants totalling over $230,000.00
from Northern Rivers CMA, Federal Government Envirofund, and Caring for our Country. Recently, we have received an additional $350,000 from the NSW Environmental Trust, making a total of $580,000.
Our funding partners
provide the financial support without which the results obtained by our
volunteers and workers would be severly curtailed.
