Case Study: Greendale Creek Landcare Group
The Greendale Creek Landcare Group is made up of the Brookvale - Curl Curl Scout Group and like-minded members of the community who care about the environment.
Greendale Creek, which runs parallel to the Group’s Scout Hall, is one of the only green areas left in the industrial suburb of Brookvale on Sydney’s northern beaches. However, the creek has become heavily polluted in recent years and is in a very poor state.
The Group has committed to a major long-term project to rehabilitate and maintain Greendale Creek and the surrounding bushland. This will require rubbish removal, the removal of coral trees, noxious weeds and other exotic plants, major engineering work to stabilise and reshape the bank, native tree planting, and ongoing monitoring and maintenance.
The project is in its early stages, but the Group has secured financial assistance from Landcare and the NSW Government, and plans to fully rehabilitate the stretch of creek over the next 5-10 years.
