Weed Blitz, Londonderry
March 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Help conserve the threatened plants of Londonderry Woodland Reserve, a pristine example of the Critically-Endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland Ecological Community.
Londonderry Woodland Reserve is a vital remnant of the critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland and it needs your help! It’s significant as one of the last remaining examples of mature grassy woodland vegetation on the Cumberland Plain, with grand old trees providing habitat for local wildlife and a diverse understorey of rare herbs, orchids and grasses. Rickaby’s Creek also runs through the reserve which provides a migration corridor for wildlife and connects other patches of Cumberland Plain Woodland from the north-east to its termination at the Wianamatta Nature Reserve in the south-east.
Conservation Volunteers Australia are conducting weed maintenance to improve the values of the reserve and ensure its protection in perpetuity. Volunteers will be able to assist with a variety of bush regeneration activities including weed removal, watering newly planted endangered plant species, flora and fauna surveys, habitat improvements, bird watching and water quality monitoring.
