Kids By The Creek - Stages 2, 3 and 4
Hilder Road State School Parents and Citizens Association
Case study type
Everyone’s Environment Grants - Round 3
An extension of the Round Two ‘Kids by the Creek’ program which involved eradication of weed infestation and weed trees followed by restoration of 600m² of Fish Creek riparian habitat. This project supports the restoration of the remaining 2076m² land of the Fish Creek riparian habitat that forms the northern boundary of HRSS with BCC land.
‘Kids By The Creek: Stages 2, 3 and 4’ will involve the site being divided up into three manageably sized sections with each stage equalling one year’s work (three stages, 2015 through 2017). Weed infestations (including Weeds of National Significance) will be removed, improving the habitat and supporting native fauna. The habitat will then be restored, with more than 1500 locally sourced and native flora planted across the site. Water quality will improve.
Additionally, the project aims to support the efforts of other organisations that are working to restore the waterway and also to provide means for our local community to take responsibility to care for our local environment.
