The Taroona Environment Network is a local volunteer Landcare group formed in 1997 to protect and restore the biodiversity of Taroona's foreshore and adjoining gully reserves. Our work is endorsed by Kingborough Council's Bushcare Unit. Monthly working bees to weed and plant are held at different sites along the foreshore. View our Working Bee Calendar below or see Events for upcoming bees. We also organise seasonal walkabouts - guided walks by local experts on various topics (see Events).
The day-to-day work of TEN is voluntary and includes administration, maintaining our work sites, organising community events, updating this website and providing expertise to community members (eg schools and individuals). For major projects we seek financial support from grants and donations. You can become a financial member of TEN for just $5.00 per calendar year. Tax deductible donations are also gratefully received.
New volunteers wanted! We are always on the lookout for new active members to join us at our working bees and on our committee. So if you'd like to become a member/renew your membership, make a donation or join us at our walkabout or working bees, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or come to our next event and introduce yourself!
"One of the first things I did when I moved to Taroona was to get involved with the work of TEN. I've learned so much and find it very rewarding to do something meaningful for my local community. And I've met many wonderful people along the way." (TEN member).
