The site is part of the Lane Cove River catchment and the Devlin Creek wildlife corridor. It is an important thoroughfare for wildlife such as the Gang Gang Cockatoo, Powerful Owl and the Eastern Bent Wing Bat, all listed on Threatened Species Conservation Act NSW.

The vegetation community is Blackbutt Gully Forest consisting of Sydney Red Gum, Turpentine and Blackbutt and is locally significant to our Bushland Shire. About 45 percent of the site that was previously considered highly degraded has regenerated to a healthy condition. It requires some ongoing light maintenance such as weeding from the Bushcare group.Some local species that had previously disappeared from the site are now present, demonstrating the work of volunteers and the sites resilience.
