Rukenvale, March 2nd
Intensive and traditional agriculture practices along the Richmond River have resulted in serious issues facing the river's water quality, stability of riparian zones, soil nutrient deficiency and increased erosion. To combat that, working with farms directly on the river, we will provide much needed riparian rehabilitation by conducting bush regeneration, weed control and re-establishing the local area's native vegetation by planting tubestock.
Londonderry, 2753, March 3rd
Come along to help restore and maintain the Londonderry Woodland Reserve, a vital remnant of the critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland with an array of native birds, including the famous Bookook Owl. A rare site that contains mature, large trees and a creek which provide habitat and migration pathways for wildlife.
By visiting the site, you can have the closest experience to what the Cumberland Plain looked like prior to European settlement. The restoration and maintenance of this area are paramount to the preservation of this unique and beautiful ecological system, so come along, have fun and get involved in bush regeneration activities, habitat improvement, flora and fauna surveys, bird watching and water quality monitoring.

Ballina, Mar 13th and 7 other dates
Koalas are listed as nationally vulnerable due primarily to the loss and fragmentation of habitat. Small habitat remnants currently support fragmented Koala populations, leaving individuals at risk of predation, isolation and displacement. In partnership with NRMA, CVA is establishing koala habitats by planting koala food trees and other supporting indigenous vegetation. We aim to provide and restore strategic habitat corridors throughout the landscape which will enhance habitat connectivity for the Koala populations.
Come and actively contribute to the survival and spread of our local Koalas!

Ballina, March 17th
Ballina Shire Council has received an Environmental Trust Grant to undertake bush regeneration and supplementary plantings at Prospect Lake, Chickiba and on the banks of North Creek. This event complements other works already underway at Chickiba Creek. Conservation Volunteers Australia is working with Ballina Shire Council to improve riparian vegetation and water quality at these sites and get the community involved.
Riparian vegetation is located on the banks of creeks and lakes. A healthy area of riparian vegetation will include native reeds, shrubs and grasses in and along the waterline and native trees on top of the embankment. Imporving the riparian vegetation provides bank stabilisation, shading that gives a thermal cover to shield creeks and fish, a habitat and food chain support for native species.
