Cockle Creek, Teralba

This planting will look at supporting structural works on the creek and help secure future saltmarsh to provide breeding habitat for aquatic species. The area to be revegetated using the trees we've donated is approximately 1,920 square metres!

The project will mitigate against deterioration of the creek in future storm events and help with the rehabilitation of a waterway that has been heavily impacted by past industrial practices. The strengthening the ecological communities along its stretch are likely to have positive flood mitigation impacts.

Planting dates: 15th April, 2021.
