CONSERVATION SIGNIFICANCE.

Importance of conserving native vegetation and a fauna habitat in relation to also maintaining a clear flood flow area. It is also very important that the native trees andplants of the frindge community along the creek line are maintained for bank and fish habitat protection.

ABOUT THE SITE.

The weed coverage before work commenced would have governed up to about 90% of the sites area, in which all was removed. The site now has great potential for success with rapid rejuvination of native species such as the Cabbage Tree Palm - Livistona australis. The educational value of the site is to keep a harmonious link with the fauna, and fauna habitat whilst undertaking bushland regeneration.
