Milton Rocks - Revegetating the Monzonite
Restoring connectivity between escarpment and sea (2015-18)
This project has been funded by the NSW Environmental Trust - Restoration and Rehabilitation grant program. Milton Rocks will strengthen previously projects delivered by the Small Farms Network focusing on improved biodiversity and sustainable land management across the Croobyar Road catchment. Check out past project links for more details.
The project objectives are:
1. To protect 3km of riparian stream length within the Narrawallee Inlet and Burrill Lake catchment by installing 3.5km of fencing and to revegetate 3 hectares within these protected corridors by establishing 5,000 locally grown tube stock from community supported nurseries
2. To engage local landholders in monitoring fauna on their properties and to increase community awareness and appreciation of the importance of healthy, vegetated riparian corridors, their role in improving water quality and the diversity of fauna species which live within their local catchments.
Our ongoing Milton Rocks project won the `Community Environmental Achievement Award - Blue Star Sustainability Award' in 2015.
