Landholders in the Booloumba Creek catchment are undertaking restoration works at several sites between the Mary River and the Conondale National Park. A key enhancement planting is underway along Wompoo Creek, a rainforest tributary to Booloumba Creek.  Three landholders are engaged with weed management and revegetation on this creek.  It was also the site for the launch of Hinterland Bush Links in November 2011 and these trees are growing really well. Roving Restorers will be doing further planting and weeding at the launch site on Sun 4 March, 9am, so please join us.

The Cambroon district, including Booloumba Creek catchment, Chinaman and Walli creeks, is the focus of a project to address weed vine invasions. Burnett Mary Regional Group is managing this Healthy Habitats project and Hinterland Bush Links will be assisting with mapping of weed vine hot spots and eradication of these weeds. A workshop will be held to inform landholders about recognising and managing weed vines. Dutchmans Pipe vine is toxic to the threatened Richmond Birdwing Butterfly so it will be targeted for control before the butterfly's favoured food plant is planted along the creek.

All these restoration works will contribute to the wildlife corridor between the Blackall and Conondale Ranges.
