Donors, Partnerships and Corporate volunteers


Assistance from the local and wider community is welcome through donations and corporate volunteer days to help fund and provide assistance for our bush regeneration and tree planting projects.

If you are interested in forming a partnership with the Friends please email us at

Brother International Australia

In 2018 Brother International Australia and the Friends of Lane Cove National Park celebrated eight years of their partnership. Each year since 2011 there has been a morning of tree planting by the Brother volunteers team, followed by lunch and the presentation of a generous donation for the Friends to use to help achieve our aims.

The partnership is part of Brother's ongoing support of the environment and the local community, and once again we thank them for their commitment to the environment and their contribution to the Friends of Lane Cove National Park.

Crimson Hill partnership

The Friends and the Defence Housing Association came to a unique agreement where DHA purchased a family membership of Friends for the initial Crimson Hill residents.

2018 saw the completion of a walking track from Crimson Hill to the Lady Game park entrance, funded by DHA.


A partnership rehabitating an urban creekline

The Mars Creek bushcare group has been fortunate in being awarded three Transurban Community Grants. The most recent grant was in 2018. These grants are available for projects that generate social and environmental benefits for communities in which Transurban roads operate. The group qualified as Mars Creek flows under the M2 at Macquarie Park.

The grants have supported the work of the volunteers in the Macquarie University ecology reserve and downstream in LCNP.

Transurban employees have also volunteered on the site.

The group looks forward to a close partnership with Transurban in helping to rehabilitate this lovely creekline (pictured).

Lane Cove Bush Regenerators

The Lane Cove Bush Regenerators was a non-profit-making co-operative who have worked in the park for many years.

Over the years they donated many hours of expertise and when the Co-op ceased operations in 2017, a proportion of their remaining funds was donated to the Friends to continue bush regeration projects with which they had been involved.

Sydney Striders

Sydney Striders Running Club welcomes runners of all abilities and provides organised events for the broader running communitty. An annual run through Lane Cove National Park is held.

The Striders have had an ongoing relationship with the Friends and donated $500 in 2018 for bush regeneration.
