Long summary

Molonglo Catchment Group has received funding from the NSW Environmental Trust under the Environmental Restoration and Rehabilitation program to conduct riparian land restoration and ecological connectivity enhancement along Jerrabomberra Creek, Googong NSW.

The project will enhance the riparian corridor by excluding livestock, planting native riparian plant species to reduce erosion and provide habitat for native fauna and control invasive willows.

The project will result in increased fauna habitat including for threatened woodland birds, improved water quality due to a reduction in sediment entering the waterway and natural regeneration of native riparian vegetation due to the removal of invasive riparian plants. The project will connect areas of existing high quality native vegetation to create a corridor of native vegetation providing habitat to fauna along Jerrabomberra Creek.

The project is a partnership between Molonglo Catchment Group, Wandiyali Restoration Trust, private landholders and Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council.
