The Green Army project will assist with the protection and enhancement of native flora and fauna within the electorate of Wills. The project aims to improve the extent, condition and connectivity of native vegetation by removing invasive weeds (both herbaceous & woody), reducing erosion as well as planting of native vegetation. Surveying of potential EPBC listed endangered species will be made possible with a Fauna Survey. The project aims to work with local community groups to raise awareness of the environmental values of the area.
