Ross Creek Projects

The Ross Creek Landcare Group has been involved in many environmental projects in the past. We have helped landholders and the community with revegetation projects, salinity control projects, and pest plant control projects - generally controlling gorse.

The current focus of the group is restoring the Ross Creek Recreation Reserve. This reserve has a great range of remnant plant species which includes native grasses and orchids. This project is on-going. We aim to continue restoring this Reserve, through revegetation activities, weed control, and the contruction of walking paths and signage to allow the everyone in the community to access the Reserve and create enviromental awareness in the Ross Cree Area.
