Anticipated Start Date: 02/10/2017

The project will aim to continue to improve and protect biodiversity within key threatened ecological communities (TEC) within the Campbelltown Local Government Area (LGA) such as CPW, SSTF, RFEF and STIF. This will be achieved through the control of WONS, noxious weeds,  environmental weeds, removal of gross pollutant waste and revegetation activities. Participants will also undertake water quality monitoring using Council’s water quality testing kits on a bi-monthly basis at Smiths Creek Reserve ,Cook Park and Fishers Ghost Reserve and gaining nursery related skills through training at Wollondilly Council Community Nursery. The project will also include works at a bushfire APZ to education participants about bushfire management practices.

Project ID: A0000011930G

Anticipated Start Date: 31/07/2017

This project will create and restore a strategic habitat corridor throughout 29 hectares of the landscape of the mid Richmond River, which will expand habitat for the Nationally Threatened Koala whilst linking the existing Tucki Tucki Nature Reserve, through an area of Nationally Threatened Lowland Rainforest to an extended Riparian Corridor along the Richmond River. A total of 5.5 hectares of previously cleared native vegetation will be replanted creating 1500 metres of riparian corridor to link existing riparian Koala habitat remnants on the Wilson’s River and 750 m of terrestrial corridor to  link riparian habitats with nearby terrestrial Koala habitat remnants.  Restoration works across 23.5 hectares will enhance condition of the linked existing habitat.

Anticipated Start Date: 09/10/2017

Two previous GA projects were delivered in Round 1 at Leonay along a section of River Road (and at Stage 3 Lindsay election commitment). The next stage of works here is in degraded areas continuing to target the protection of the Riparian Forest and Shale Plains woodland along the riverbank areas, the vulnerable Eucalyptus benthamii, Cumberland Land Snail and wombat, possum and bush bird habitat at Leonay. Works may be in a mosaic fashion to protect nests and drays, particularly in spring in order to maintain fauna habitat. Objectives include improving the local environment through weed control and revegetation, providing an event to engage the community/ supporting the Bushcare group and training young Australians for future employment.

Project ID: E1672X710448

Anticipated Start Date: 23/10/2017

This project will help to increase the biodiversity of Cumberland Plain Woodland, a critically endangered ecological community. This will be achieved through having this project’s participants engaged in propagating a diverse range of native plants, focusing on uncommon, unusual and if permitted rare & threatened species. Participants will be involved in every aspect of the process, which will involve; planning, collection of seed from local native plant species, seed processing, sowing of seed, potting up of seedlings and finally watering and maintenance of potted stock. In addition to this, weed control and rubbish removal activities are scheduled to provide participants with an experience of other elements to environmental conservation.
