Wallamba Bridges Bushcare

Caring for riparian reserves in the Wallamba Valley

KGLL’s “Wallamba Bridges Bushcare” project seeks to tackle problem weed infestations in “public” areas near bridges on the Wallamba River, with the support of MidCoast Council.

With funding through Council's Bushcare Program, TIDE (Taree Indigenous Development & Employment) Rangers and other bush regeneration contractors have done primary weed treatments at four sites: Dyers Crossing, Krambach, Firefly and Nabiac.

Sites were chosen for both their prominent positions near well-trafficked roads and their strong natural regeneration potential, so the bush can come back as weeds are brought under control.

Local Landcare volunteers are now regularly following up, rotating between the sites. Volunteers are given Work Health and Safety inductions and weed management toolkits by MidCoast Council.
