Smiths Creek Koala Habitat Project

Project status: In Progress

Smiths Creek Koala Habitat Project

Approx start: February 2019 Approx finish: July 2019

About the Project

Greater Sydney Local Land Services have awarded a grant of $20,000 to Council under the Improving Urban Koala Habitat Linkages and Community Stewardship project. Supported by additional funds by Council, locally the project aims to both improve Shale Sandstone Transition Forest vegetation, a Critically Endangered Ecological Community, and raise awareness of the value of tree hollows habitat for native wildlife through a 'Hollows for Homes' project within local schools.

The project will specifically focus on:

  • Bush regeneration and weed management works across two areas of critically endangered Shale Sandstone Transition Forest vegetation adjacent to Wattle Reserve, Wattle Road & Richmond Crescent
  • Improvement of habitat for threatened species such as the Koala and Cumberland Plain Land Snail
  • Ongoing support of the Smiths Creek Bushcare Volunteer Group
  • Undertaking two 'Hollows for Homes' projects at Ruse and Kentlyn Public schools which engage the pupils in a study of local wildlife as recorded through fixed on-site camera traps.

How can you get involved?

Community involvement will help guarantee the success of the project and you can help by joining Council's Bushcare Program!
