Summary

This project seeks to restore the area of Baxter Creek, Mapleton, which borders the Mapleton State School grounds. Weeding and re-vegetation activities will be undertaken to remove tobacco weed, camphor laurel trees, lantana and other weeds, and the area will be re-vegetated with remnant vegetation. This project is linked to the broader long-term goal of improving the biodiversity of the school grounds.

Benefits

This project will:
  • reduce erosion along the creek during high rainfall events and improved native habitat on the creek, including the re-establishment of remnant vegetation.
