About this opportunity
Londonderry Woodland Reserve is a vital remnant of the critically endangered Cumberland Plain Woodland! It is very special because it is one of the only local examples of mature native vegetation, with grand old trees providing habitat for local wildlife and a diverse understorey of rare herbs, orchids and grasses. Rickaby’s Creek also runs through the reserve which provides a migration corridor for wildlife, as it links pockets of Cumberland Plain Woodland from the north-east to its termination at the Wianamatta Nature Reserve in the south-east. Conservation Volunteers Australia are conducting weed maintenance to improve the values of the reserve and ensure its protection in perpetuity. Volunteers will engage in bush regeneration activities, weed removal, watering newly planted endangered plant species, flora and fauna surveys, habitat improvements, bird watching and water quality monitoring.
