Help protect and enhance Camden’s natural habitat
Posted 12 months ago
Protecting and enhancing Camden’s natural habitat is high on the agenda, with Camden Council developing the Caring for Cobbitty Hills Landholder Guide recently.
The guide and program offer key information to landowners in the Cobbitty Hills area, with important information on the value of the bushland found on their property and what key actions can be undertaken to protect the environmental values of the land.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Theresa Fedeli, said the guide is a great resource for residents in Cobbitty Hills.
“The Cobbitty Hills biodiversity corridor supports a wide range of plants and animals which are both endangered and vulnerable ecological communities, so it is pivotal to protect it,” Cr Fedeli said.
“The landholder guide will assist those who are interested in protecting and improving the native vegetation on their property and learning about ways to generate income through conserving this remnant vegetation.”
Council has also worked on enhancing and protecting the local ecological community recently, including:
- Restoring Harrington Forest’s Cumberland Plain Woodland including weed treatment to help regenerate native vegetation in the area; and
- Installing floating wetlands at Harrington Park Lake to improve water quality
