Summary

This project includes mapping and identification of biodiversity values and assets, weed extents, threats, school landscape and learning areas and proposed extensions. It lists recommendations for future management.  A School Environmental Management Plan (SEMP) is developed in consultation with the school community. This guides the management of the school grounds and surrounding wetland area under school management. Cooloola Coastcare volunteers and Project manager provide 3 information sessions to engage and educate the school community of the SEMP and its implications and recommendations.

Benefits

  • Reduced impact of Class 2 and environmental weeds on the coastal sedge wetland system of Snapper Creek estuary, a Great Sandy Strait Ramsar site wetland
  • education and engagement with school staff.
