Since the year 2000, the group has been restoring the original rain forest along a 2km length of Ourimbah creek. We've turned abandoned farmland into a mosaic of rainforest and wetland, with corridors of vegetation that connect to the forested ranges. More than 350 species of native biota have been identified living at the site, making it a hotspot of biodiversity. It's a fascinating area and you can join us Mondays and Thursday, 7.30 - 12.30.



Our Landcare group has been active in the Ourimbah Creek valley since its incorporation in 1998.

Regenerating seedlings need to be identified as soon as they germinate. This helps their survival, because they can be protected against browsers and watered during hot spells.

Since the year 2000, we have been progressively extending the regeneration of native forest from their surviving remnants.

We are nurturing rainforest vegetation on the floodplain of Ourimbah Creek so that it traps sediment and nutrients such as phosphorus every time there is a flood.
