The objectives of the Society are

  • To act to protect and foster an interest in the natural environment, particularly at the local level;
  • To foster an understanding of the need to conserve the natural environment and resources; and

  • Being an independent local watchdog over actions of local Councils, government agencies and developers.

  • Providing a forum for members to express their environmental concerns to local, state and national governments.

  • Campaigning against inappropriate tree removal and other environmental damage in our suburbs.

  • Providing environmentally-focussed feedback to local Councils on significant developments and management plans.

  • Publishing educational materials including Birds of Oatley Park, Native Plants of Oatley and producing a monthly newsletter to keep members informed about local environmental issues, as well as conservation issues in the wider community.

  • Supporting environmental campaigns, such as conservation of urban bushland and protection of the Georges River catchment.

  • Making representations to Members of Parliament on important local environmental issues.

  • Investigating and reporting environmental problems such as pollution and habitat destruction.
