Point Cook Coastal Park and Port Phillip Bay Western Shoreline Nature Link Enhancements
The Point Cook Coastal Park and Port Phillip Bay Western Shoreline Nature Link Enhancements sub-project of the Greening the West of Melbourne (One Million Trees) Project will establish and manage 150,000 mixed native species plantings by the end of June 2017 at locations within the Port Phillip Bay Western Shoreline Nature Link (as identified in the Regional Catchment Strategy), including specific focus on sites where Green Army projects will be implemented within the Point Cook Coastal Park.
Initially focused on provision of plants that support approved Green Army projects at Werribee River Park, Point Cook Coastal Park and Cheetham Wetlands, this sub-project will also involve planting at sites that extend and enhance the initial Green Army projects and prior works undertaken by land managers, Landcare groups and/or “Friends of” groups.
Sites are identified within Truganina Reserve and other coastal reserves and along the riparian corridors of the Skeleton Creek, Laverton Creek, Lower Kororoit Creek (within the City of Hobsons Bay), and along the Hobsons Bay Coastal Trail.
Sub-project outcomes will support achievement of goals within the Regional Catchment Strategy, Point Cook Coastal Park Master Plan, relevant coastal plan, council master plans for relevant parks and reserves, and the Greening the West Strategy.
