The Natural Environment of Lane Cove

Book Cover

Almost every part of Lane Cove is within 500 metres of bushland. This proximity to bushland defines the character of the municipality, creates a suburban identity, provides a bushland frame to many views and makes Lane Cove an attractive place to live.

The Natural Environment of Lane Cove is a fantastic introduction to the plants, animals, bushland and waterways of our area. 

This easy-to-read book is a useful educational resource for local community and schools. Topics covered include native vegetation, soils, wildlife, European and Aboriginal history, human impacts on their environment and environmental management. The reference list and web links allow readers to explore topics of interest further.

This book is also available as a hard copy. It can be borrowed from Lane Cove library or purchase your own copy for $22 from Council's Customer Service Desk, Lane Cove Civic Centre, 48 Longueville Rd, Lane Cove.
