The Parks Dept has no management plan for the Wilderness other than keeping the paths clear. One result is a multitude of saplings which threaten the last of what was open agricultural land when Henbury was surrounded by farms.
In order to prevent the permanent loss of most of the 119 plant species, 6 butterfly species, etc. identified in a study carried out in 2009 by John Burton these saplings must be removed. Thus we have agreed witht the Parks Dept. that a team of say, four, volunteers will work alongside Council employees to eradicate the saplings.
