Foundation Projects in the Blue Mountains Region

Growing Protected Areas in the Blue Mountains

In 2011, the Foundation received a donation of land worth $20,000 in the Blue Mountains. This high conservation value property acts as an ecological buffer zone, and is home to the threatened plant species Needle Geebung, Persoonia acerosa.


Yellomundee Regional Park Grows by Neighbour's Generosity

During 2010, the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife received a donation of high value conservation land which it has gifted to the public for future protection in our national reserve system. The land donation by John and Shirley Sarks provides the addition of more than 120 hectares to the Yellomundee Regional Park


Growing Abercrombie River National Park

In 2007 the Foundation added 204 hectares of open woodland to the Abercrombie River National Park.


Growing Wiarborough Nature Reserve

In 2010 the Foundation received a land donation of 200.4 hectares along the Glen Road, Wiarborough. Early in 2011, this property became part of the national reserve system and a part of Wiarborough Nature Reserve.


Protecting Yerranderie for all time

Valerie Lhuedé has been restoring her own private ghost town of Yerranderie for over 30 years, but at the age of 87, she donated the 467 hectare property to the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS). Yerranderie will become a state managed Regional Park, preserving its heritage buildings and wildlife habitats for the enjoyment of all.
