More than 40 hectares of bushland in Noorumba Reserve, Rosemeadow is being revitalised as part of Biodiversity Stewardship Agreement.

Works are currently underway to remove weeds, collect seeds, revegetate bushland, control erosion, remove rubbish and assess feral animal control measures as well as installing fencing and gates at the site.

The agreement will see Council manage the site in perpetuity with funding each year for works from the Biodiversity Conservation Trust.

“These works are significant and will ensure a variety of fauna and flora are protected and enhanced,” Mayor George Brticevic said.

“Noorumba Reserve is an important movement corridor for our precious koalas and many other animals as well as being a home to important vegetation such as the critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland and Shale Sandstone Transition Forest,” Cr Brticevic said.

“Campbelltown’s bushland is one of the great things that makes it unique and through careful environmental management including weed management, revegetation and seed collection, we will be able to ensure this reserve is thriving for many years to come,” he said.

Nearby residents will still be able to enjoy Noorumba Reserve’s existing trails for bushwalking.

Residents are reminded to keep their dogs on a leash when walking through or near bushland to ensure the protection of animals such as koalas.
