COVID-19 pauses Oyster Creek Gully Bushcare

lovely flow of water bubbling down the boulder-lined creek at Oyster Creek Gully

After recent rain, Oyster Creek Gully in Sutherland Shire is looking stunning, with a lovely flow of water bubbling down the boulder-lined creek.

The rain has also led to an influx of annual weeds which is keeping the contractors working as part of our Oyster Creek Gully Restoration Project busy, for the time being.

Georges Riverkeeper staff were recently on site with Sutherland Shire Council and the contractors to assess the site's progression.

The project is proceeding well; a large proportion of primary works have been completed and the remainder will occur in spring, when treatment of woody weeds is most effective.

Unfortunately, for those wanting to help out at one of the Bushcare sites in the project area, Bushcare days have been postponed due to COVID-19.

This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
