Wayne Cameron, Catchment Manager at B4C, and I presented Matthew with the new Whites Hill Reserve Precinct Landscape Plan.

The Precinct Plan outlines the potential for creating wildlife corridors with rope bridge road crossings and revegetation. Development of The Knoll Outlook with picnic and kids play area will also create a special place for families and visitors watching soccer on the fields below.

Whites Hill to Oates Hill Glider Path

Making Bill Hewitt Reserve wildlife friendly is a key step in creating a glider path between Whites Hill and Oates Hill Reserves.

Development will also support proof of concept research of low cost corridor solutions using rope bridges and solutions for water for wildlife in our local parks. Currently most BCC parks do not meet the standards for Certified Pollinator Link Gardens.
