THE regeneration of the Crowdy Bay National Park south of Laurieton has been given a healthy boost by recent rainfall and the landscape is flourishing.
But, so too are the weeds and an eradication week is planned for May. The call has gone out for volunteers to help.
Crowdy Bay National Park includes Diamond Head and Kylies Beach.
The National Parks Association has undertaken volunteer bush regeneration in the park since 1979 with significant achievements.
The 2019 bushfire wiped out 84 per cent of the park.
"Not in our wildest dreams could we have imagined what the park would look like a year later," spokesperson Sue Baker said.
"Abundant rainfall saw spectacular natural regeneration with parts of the park swathed in the yellow of flowering grass trees in October and then with the red and orange of Christmas bells by November.
"Three 'big wets' since then have produced rampant growth."
Weeds however, have also had a chance to flourish, particularly tobacco bush, Acacia saligna and morning glory vine.
Volunteer help is needed to assist the regeneration of these post-fire infested areas.
Weed removal activities will run from May 17-23 at Kylies Beach campground.
"Our great group of regulars will welcome you warmly. There is time to swim, drop a fishing line and explore the surrounds," Sue said.
"We have use of a trailer fully equipped with eating, cooking and washing up utensils, a sink, an urn and tables all under tarpaulin cover which makes camping so much easier. We have a campfire each night and dinner is provided on Saturday night."
Phone Sue on 6559 7134 if you would like to attend.
