The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) is calling on cyclists to participate in the first program of its type in Royal National Park to involve volunteer riders helping with bush regeneration and track maintenance works on park cycle tracks.

“Becoming involved with this track-related work will provide opportunities for people to help the environment, to restore plant and animal habitat and to share knowledge and socialise with like-minded people.

“Participants will have a great opportunity to meet with park staff and share ideas and input into the maintenance process to develop techniques for maintaining cycling tracks in Royal National Park.

Time: 9:00am – 3:00pm
Meet: Royal Area Office, Farnell Ave, Audley.
