Summary

This project will undertake weeding and re-vegetation activities along Three Mile Creek and Scrubby Creek, both of which are direct tributaries of Mary River. Four-hundred plants will be planted across 10ha. This will improve the creeks’ environmental health and resilience in order to facilitate continued existence, strengthen habitat and enable reintroduction of species of flora and fauna, including the yellow-bellied and greater glider, platypus, bettong, koala, Richmond birdwing butterfly, Choricacarpa subargentea (giant ironwood) and Macadamia integrifolia.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve Three Mile Creek’s and Scrubby Creek’s environmental health and resilience.
