Hawkesbury Environment Network (HEN) is on the look out for new blood to help continue its amazing work.

The group is highly regarded as one of the peak community organisations in the region, it is made up of dedicated volunteers who look after the environment of the Hawkesbury.

It is currently working on the restoration and improvement of Pughs Lagoon at Richmond, work make possible by a Commonwealth grant.

Hawkesury Environment Network volunteers have been busy weeding and planting new wetland species at the site over the past eight months.

The grouo is also involved in a survey of 30 other Hawkesbury wetlands, ensuring the future of these precious resources.

Residents will also no doubt remember two "Koalafests" supported by the network to raise awareness of koala protection.

Hawkesbury Environment Network vice-chair Jocelyn Howden said that group members were also involved in several bushcare projects.

She said that sadly, two valued committee members had recently had to step back for personal reasons.

"HEN is encouraging people who have an interest or concern for the precious natural beauty of the Hawkesbury to consider joining the leadership team of HEN," Ms Howden said.

"It is a warm welcoming group of locals who value the environment and would provide encouragement and support to any new members who would like to step up into a leadership role."
