Summary

This project aims to survey creek sites via a community ‘Creek Crawl’, commence initial water quality testing, locate photo-points, and meet with partners/supporters. Private landholders and local volunteers will be engaged to conduct rehabilitation and planting activities. Maintenance, water quality testing, reporting and evaluation will also be undertaken.

Benefits

Everyone’s Ithaca will focus on the headwaters of Ithaca Creek, using best practice science and re-vegetation techniques in order to achieve habitat for wildlife, resistance to weed invasion, reduced sedimentation and space for Brisbane residents to enjoy their local creek.
