A public rally today should give some clarity about how many people are prepared to get their hands dirty in the quest to restore Mt Keira to its former glory.
Leigh Stewart said there were no Band-Aid solutions to the overgrown state of Mt Keira Summit Park and the popular lookout Robertson's Knoll.
The project needed a long-term commitment.
"We hope to get some clarity on who wants to support us, who can come and give their time. This is not just a local council issue - it's a state government issue, a national parks issue, a roads issue," said Mr Stewart, from the Mt Keira Lookout Action Group.
"After closely inspecting the area we are in for a long journey," he said.
"'The overgrown state of the area is of epic proportions and a total embarrassment to those who worked so hard creating the Mt Keira of old."
He said it would take a huge amount of voluntary time from hundreds of citizens over the coming months.
Paul Tracey, from the Botanic Gardens, said he had been watching with interest over the past few weeks as the Facebook page had grown.
"And it is particularly pleasing to see the number of contributors who have indicated a willingness to help at the Mount Keira Summit Park," he said.
"We are the first to admit that we could use a helping hand."
The meeting is at 2pm today. Entry is via Mt Ousley Rd.
