Lagoon creek Environmental Reserve
Weed control is a massive part of managing natural areas. Also known as assisted regeneration. The weed control and removal processes help to support natural vegetation and native plant species' succession and help to build the site's natural resistance to weed invasion, erosion, drought etc.
Native plant propagation - Community Native Nurseries
The collection of seed and propagation of indigenous plant species is also extremely important to preserve local plant species and the ecological and vegetation communities they belong in. Local and indigenous plant propagation helps to restore vegetation composition so vital to local ecological communities and ecosystem health.
Community nurseries, most times solely rely on volunteer help. Both Lagoon Creek Nursery and CREEC Nursery sell plants to the public to help increase biodiversity in backyards. There is such a high percentage of plant species that will never be seen in mainstream nurseries that are important to maintain local ecosystems and that fauna rely on to survive. These nurseries and the plants they propagate are vital to the conservation of surrounding areas.
Encouraging backyard biodiversity is one of the most exciting things we do. In South east Queensland the biodiversity of life is incredible. And all you need to do to encourage this wildlife in your back yard is to move some of this local environment in.
