Restoring Bridge Creek

Bridge Creek at Bridge Creek Rd (M. Dunstan)

Bridge Creek at Bridge Creek Rd (M. Dunstan)

380 metres of a tributary of Bridge Creek will be fenced and re-vegetated, establishing a vegetation corridor between remnant rainforest vegetation and a constructed wetland on the outskirts of urban Maleny.  Poor water quality in Lake Baroon (the Sunshine Coast’s most important water supply) from grazing, erosion, sedimentation, urban development, habitat fragmentation, biodiversity decline and weed spread will be addressed. The project will be implemented over two adjoining properties with area mapped as Essential Habitat for threatened species by DERM (EPBC vulnerable Macadamia ternifolia and Syzygium hodgkinsoniae). Local non-profit groups will assist with the preparation, planting and maintenance of the project.
