Burpengary Creek Restoration
Case study type
The Green Army will improve the remaining natural areas of Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre's 18 hectare site. This will include restoring fauna habitat and improving water quality of Saltwater Creek. Native seeds from wild collections and nursery production will be propagated in the community plant nursery, providing tube stock for local area plantings. Participants will be trained in Bushcare site assessment, plant propagation, revegetation methods, weed management, habitat restoration and community engagement procedures. Green Army employs young adults from 17-24 to gain practical training and experience in protecting the local environment.
Remaining natural and less managed areas of Caboolture Region Environmental Education Centre's site will be improved. Fauna habitat and water quality will be restored. Planting undertaken using locally collected seed.
