Kitty's Creek, Sugarloaf Point Reserve
Andrew Duffy (Ranger) initiated a grant application in early 2006 on behalf of the Friends for to restore a unique area of Lane Cove National Park – a mangrove and saltmarsh vegetation community at Kitty’s Creek (a subsidiary of Lane Cove River) at Sugarloaf Point reserve on Pittwater Rd East Ryde.
The Ocean Watch Australia Tide to Table Program program funded by Sydney Metropolitan Catchment Management Authority approved a grant for $40,000.
The funds are to employ contractors to undertake regeneration along the creek and construct a sediment basin to prevent sediment from the road and nearby houses from reaching the creek.
Volunteers then carry out follow up and maintenance along the creek and environs in the project area. The project is managed by the Friends of Lane Cove National Park Inc. and staff of Lane Cove National Park.
As part of the grant, the Friends are committed to involving the local community in caring for the areas regenerated. In this regard, we aim to set up a regular volunteer bushcare group.
