The creek line that runs into Simmos Beach Reserve at Macquarie Fields has been successfully restored, thanks to a joint project implemented by Council and the Georges Riverkeeper.
Georges Riverkeeper Treasurer Rey Manoto said the works had improved environmental outcomes for the local area.
“These works have restored the flow of the creek to help protect against flooding during high rainfall periods as well as removing weeds, rubbish and sediment,” he said.
Extending his thanks to all the volunteers and local residents who pitched in to help improve the important bushland, Mayor George Brticevic said, “It was fantastic to see the community so engaged with cleaning up this area so that it can be enjoyed by both people and the animals who use this important urban bushland corridor.”
Anyone interested in helping to maintain the site and getting involved with protecting local bushland can join the Simmos Beach Bushcare Group by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
