The GreenWay Project’s Biodiversity Officer, Adam Ward, is currently working on several revegetation projects along the GreenWay with specialised contractors, Councils and community groups including the Cooks River Mudcrabs and Friends of Ewen Park.
The activities, which include gradual removal of weeds from escarpments (pictured), extensive native plantings and some species mapping, are consistent with the goals of the GreenWay “Trellis” concept - connecting the GreenWay habitat corridor into neighbouring properties.
Also known as Bio-Linkages (or Bio-Links for short), these works are a key recommendation from the GreenWay Biodiversity Strategy, which is in the final stages of development.
The GreenWay Project is also partnering with Marrickville Council’s Sustainable Streets Officer, Ester Nyers, to implement community verge plantings in Constitution Road, Dulwich Hill. These plantings will be completed in close proximity to 3 bushcare sites and the rail corridor, with the aim of increasing habitat connectivity.
