Project ID: A0000011908G
Anticipated Start Date: 30/01/2017
The project will restore 15 hectares of the critically Endangered Ecological Community Lowland Rainforest of Subtropical Australia along Neurum Creek through strategic revegetation of 12,000 trees and understorey plants. Targeted plantings will buffer and connect existing remnant riparian vegetation to extend critical habitat and along with strategic fencing, help stabilise streambanks to reduce erosion and protect downstream water quality in Somerset Dam.
A Green Army team will assist landholders in the project to manage key Weeds of National Significance, including Cats claw creeper and Madeira vine using a range of best practice techniques, plus help with the site preparation, establishment, maintenance and ongoing monitoring of the revegetation.
