A KINGSLEY Bush Forever site is in need of a friends group to care for it.

And to draw people’s attention to the diverse flora at the 17ha Shepherds Bush Reserve, bushland experts David Pike and David Hancock will lead a one-hour walk there this Sunday.

A recent survey identified at least 110 flora species and though the vegetation is considered to be in good to very good condition, weed invasion, bushfires and feral animals are environmental threats.

A friends group would help reduce some of the threats and ensure the integrity of the reserve. All are welcome on the walk.

For more information call John Chester on 0408 985 022 or visit www.joondalup.wa.gov.au.
