This group was formed in 2008. The group are working to restore a degraded creek line running into the Stringybark Creek catchment. Lots of primary weeding tackling Privet, Madeira Vine and Trad (photo below left -2008), to be followed by revegetation works in the future! Regeneration and revegetation (photo below right - 2016) have seen some very positive changes.
