Project Area: F. Feed to Froggy Pond


Description:
Valley, previously farmed with sugar cane, drainage contours visible and already showing signs of natural rehabilitation with the Phragmites Australis.
Alien encroachment on Northern slope. Pepper infestation breeching and dividing water flow into Froggy Pond. Soil condition – sparse clay to shale.
Abandoned sugar cane fields reverting back to grasslands but alien action needs to be taken, pepper, lantana and Triffid emerging.

Action Plan:
Abandoned farming fields need alien removal and rehabilitation with diverse indigenous grasses. Wooded aliens to be killed in place on slopes and waterway breech.
