Marmong Point Landcare formed in April 2010 when Bob Jones developed the desire to clear the wetland area of lantana.

 

Jeannine O’Riley joined Bob a short time after, and together they perform approximately ten hours perweek rehabilitating the site. Jeannine and Bob’s commitment to rehabilitating the Marmong Wetland, together with the assistance provided by the Lake Macquarie Landcare Bush Regeneration and Green Teams, has transformed this previously highly degraded wetland site. Residents, hikers, and school students, are now able to enjoy this beautiful environment, and experience the native flora and fauna that are thriving in the rehabilitated habitat.
The Marmong Point Landcare group occasionally coordinates their landcare activities with the Marmong Creek Landcare group who work further up the catchment rehabilitating the riparian zones of Marmong Creek. With the guidance of the Landcare Resource Office (LRO) both groups aim to work towards a ‘whole catchment’ rehabilitation outcome.
