Summary

This project aims to undertake weeding and re-vegetation activities on 40m of Fish Creek, The Gap. This project will improve the stabilisation of the creek’s bank and builds on previous re-vegetation work conducted by the applicant and other community groups.

Benefits

Replanting and stabilising the area will ensure the creek bank is resilient from erosion and contamination. By planting native plants such as lamandara and replacing the trees lost during the Gap storms in 2008, the creek bank would be made secure. Weed matting will be installed to ensure the Elephant Grass cannot continue to spread and weaken the creek bank.
