Summary

This project seeks to enhance native habitat by planting 400 local native trees, shrubs and grasses, controlling Weeds of National Significance (WONS) weeds over 20ha and placing 50 nest boxes in the landscape in sites around Toowoomba. The project also seeks to protect and restore over 1km of West Creek banks through local native tree planting.

Benefits

The re-vegetation and provision of nest boxes will ensure habitat for local native wildlife. Implementing weed control activities in existing high value remnant vegetation at Mt. Peel will improve the environmental resilience to extreme weather events and will allow native habitat to regenerate and take over the weed infested areas.
