Ecological restoration

Ecological restoration plan

Ecological restoration is the process of assisting the recovery of an ecosystem that
has been degraded, damaged or destroyed
(Society for Ecological Restoration 2004)

In 2020 the Bushcare Group adopted a specific Ecological Restoration Plan for the upper catchment of Lawson Creek, Lawson, Blue Mountains. The upper catchment is an important component of the entire bushcare site. It has some highly degraded areas, primarily brought about by Privet and Blackberry infestation. Over time, it is planned to restore the upper catchment area to a condition that facilitates its ongoing ecological development and functioning as swamp, riparian and forest vegetation communities.
