The Project – Mount Holden Revegetation Project

Mount Holden stands large over the township of Sunbury. An extinct volcano, the site supports limited native vegetation and harbours some weeds, but also presents as an opportunity for creating significant habitat for small woodland birds and animals in an urban growth corridor. This project seeks to create a legacy for the Sunbury Township through targeted weed control and re-establishment of a Plains Grassy Woodland habitat across Mount Holden. The project team will also contribute to expanding the extent and quality of native vegetation along nearby creeks and vegetation corridors.
