Projects

Seaspray weed and revegetation site - NACC grant.

This area was densely populated with Agave and Boxthorn plants, we aim to assist in the protection of local native coastal plants by removing the Agave and Boxthorn and re-vegetating with local provenance plants.  The Boxthorn was removed and on Friday 24 August 2018 we conducted the first of two planting sessions, in which we planted 150 seedlings.

Smart Living Guidelines  

The Shire of Irwin’s Green Infrastructure Strategy advocates development of Smart Living Guidelines.

These guidelines aim to encourage our community to reduce water usage, energy consumption and waste within the household and to enhance biodiversity within the urban environment.
