Cranks Creek is a valuable ecosystem that is home to a diversity of native birds, frogs and mammals. The aim of the National Tree Day Planting is to extend the area of vegetation alongside the creek (riparian zone). This will increase the streambank resiliance to erosion in a large rainfall event. It also means extension of habitat for wildlife and trees for cleaner air.
We are pleased the council has allowed us to 'reclaim' a previously mowed area close to the stream bank. This will benefit water quality, minimise erosion and help to link habitat for frogs, birds, insect, reptiles and more.
The Cranks Creek Community Nature Conservation group has been volunteering at Cranks Creek for a over 10 years and meet monthly to restore the health of this valuable urban ecosystem and wildlife corridor.
