In 2009, we worked with Wyong Shire Council to help revegetate a former dairy farm and transform it into the beautiful wetland reserve it is today.

Nearly 4,000 native trees were planted to re-build a biodiverse forest and help improve water quality in the vital wetlands which act as a storage and filter basin for urban stormwater prior to entering Tuggerah Lake.

This project is of significance for biodiversity conservation as many vegetation communities that exist on this site are identified as Endangered Ecological Communities under the Threatened Species Conservation (TSC) Act (1995).

The site is also part of a larger 'Important Bird Area' for migratory birds.

When we last visited the site in December 2014, Greenfleet Forester Eoghan was very pleased with the growth of the forest. "The site is showing outstanding growth rates and boasting high biodiversity values," he said. "There is good diversity amongst the species planted and excellent wildlife presence within."
