Dora Creek Landcare Group

24th May 2023

Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—I'd like to acknowledge the efforts of Dora Creek Landcare Group and the Green Team which has spent the past few weeks toiling away at a site near Dora Creek boat ramp. Volunteers have made major inroads against the relentless spread of lantana, asparagus fern and bitou bush in the area, spending hours digging out and breaking down these invasive weeds. They also cleared out mounds of rubbish from the iconic spot to help rehabilitate and restore this valuable habitat. The bushland at the newly rejuvenated boat ramp site is classified as Swamp Oak – Rushland. There is very little of this vegetation type left in the world so the groups is doing some extremely important work in protecting it. It's wonderful when community members come together for the betterment of the local environment. I acknowledge and thank the Dora Creek Landcare volunteers for their ongoing passion to help preserve our natural bushland for future generations.
