Conservation Volunteers Australia received a grant from the NSW Environmental Trust to restore coastal Endangered Ecological Communities (EECs) and threatened species habitat at Glenrock State Conservation area, near Newcastle in NSW.
The aim of the project is to restore the condition and ecological value of valuable Littoral Rainforest habitat in the Glenrock region. The project aims to build the capacity of community volunteers and to conserve EECs and threatened species values at Glenrock and maintain this value into the future. Volunteer community groups such as Burwood Beach Coastcare are supported by the project, enabling them to increase their capacity to undertake work on the project site and wider locality of the Glenrock State Conservation Area.
The Glenrock Restoration and Rehabilitation Project further aims to educate local park neighbours and school students to better understand the value of EECs and threatened species. Partnering with WetlandCare Australia, the project will host several community events and create and distribute a newsletter to educate the community about the importance of the Glenrock State Conservation area.
