Group convenor: Bob Whiteman
This group works on Riaweena Street, The Gap, west of Illowra Street. This site has some established trees and excellent habitat but has also had a huge Cats Claw weed problem.

Matt Tomkins and Vicky Hannay have been very active in this group which has spent many years removing the infestation of Cat’s Claw and Madeira Vine upstream of the footbridge to School Road.

The site stretches from the corner of Payne Rd and School Rd to the back of the Gap High School. It is is one of the most well established of the SOWN sites, with some plantings going back to the mid 1980s. The Bob Wilson Buschcare Site is also located along this section of the creek.
