14119: Blackberry removal and the restoration of Bull Creek Reserve Stage 2

    Bull Creek Reserve is a Bush Forever site with some excellent sections of remnant bush and wetland areas. The reserve is under threat from a number of highly invasive weeds including blackberry, lantana, Acacia longifolia, and papyrus. Bullcreek Main Drain, that passes through the reserve, has been identified as a priority in a Water Quality Improvement Plan.

    This project aims to improve habitat, water quality and biodiversity along Bull Creek Reserve by continuing a program of blackberry removal and revegetation of areas previously weeded.
