Our application to the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science for a $20,000 grant under the Communities Environment Program (CEP) has been successful.
This project will restore approximately 2 hectares of degraded land on both sides of the Ludlow River between the Tuart Drive and Ludlow Road, North bridges by infill planting of native species endemic to the area and sourced from local nurseries.
The project site was once part of the old Moriarty farm which was cleared of almost all native vegetation in the mid to late 1800`s. Weeds presently dominate the understory however there are still small communities of native plant and canopy tree species.
The improved land will will help support and encourage the return and protection of birds and small marsupials such as bandicoots, ringtail and brush tail possums and enhance the natural biodiversity of this area.
Site preparation will commence early 2020 with planting mid year and final completion by year end. If you would like to join our team, just phone Bill on 0419 944 251.
