Summary

The project is a re-vegetation project on the Pine Rivers Wetland Reserve in Griffin. The reserve is ideally placed to mitigate some of the impacts of urban development on the Pine River wetlands and its associated Declared Fish Habitat areas. The Pine River is an internationally recognised Ramsar Wetland and flows into the Moreton Bay Marine Park.

Benefits

The project will create a buffer of vegetation that will filter stormwater run-off from urban areas during storm and other extreme weather events. It will also reduce sediment loads and nutrient entering waterways and being transported to Moreton Bay.
