Evolve Environmental Solutions commenced work in 2013 at Astonbrook Estate Carindale removing all declared weeds in the riparian corridor of Spring Creek. Predominantly covered in Cats Claw vine, Lantana and Camphor laurel trees, the site was particularly sensitive due to the substantial Rainbow Fish habitat living in the creek.
A bridge crossing was installed at the southern end of the corridor, paying particular attention to erosion and sediment management. Weekly water quality tests were performed onsite, whilst Rainbow Fish monitoring occurred on a monthly basis. After initial weed management, over 40,000 native trees and shrubs were planted onsite and nesting boxes were installed.
The return of native animals to this corridor has been exciting, as white cockatoos, gliders and water lizards are now frequently seen. Visitors to the area are advised to keep an eye out for the 5.0m python that resides near the bridge.
