Nimbin Environment Centre has been working to protect native plants in the Mulgum Creek Rainforest. They are removing infestations of high priority weeds.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan said they want to continue this work and remove more weeds.
“It was great to announce $10,000 to support this important project,” Mr Hogan said.
“The Mulgum Creek Rainforest Restoration Project will combat invasive weed species on the upper reaches of Mulgum Creek.”
“They will drill and poison mature woody weed species and volunteers will hand weed seedlings.”
“Environmental weeds are a serious threat to the health of our waterways.”
“The upper reaches of Mulgum Creek have some significant infestations of seeded banana, giant devil fig, privet and maderia vine.”
Management of these exotic species will help native plants and animals.”
