Summary

This project aims to create a continuous corridor from the Cooroy Scout Club to Mill Place and beyond to the Cooroy Sewage Treatment wetland. The project will connect fragments of endangered lowland subtropical rainforest ecosystems that occur along Cooroy Creek with large open forest and woodland remnants. The project also aims to create a frogscape along Cooroy Creek. Weeds, including privet, lantana and morning glory, will be removed from the creek and replaced with lomandras and other native species. A total of 3050 trees will be planted over 1.5ha creating a wildlife corridor that is capable of supporting the dispersal, recruitment and breeding of threatened frogs, koalas and platypus.
