Summary

This project aims to undertake weeding (broadleaf pepper tree, cat’s claw creeper, Chinese celtis, lantana camara, madeira vine, and Singapore daisy) and re-vegetation activities (establishing 240 trees) in the Upper Bulimba Creek catchment area. Litter clean-up activities will also be conducted in the area.

Benefits

Improvement in the condition of the riparian area and the bushland on the site will improve habitat and food sources for wildlife in the area. The plant buffer will assist with filtering of sediment and in improving the quality of the water entering the creek system after severe rain events.
