Background to the Barrer Restoration Project
Barrer Hill is an area of degraded Box-Gum Woodland within the Molonglo River Park opposite the new suburb of Coombs. It has high conservation values and is home to the protected Pink-tailed Worm-lizard and many woodland birds. The ACT government has to date undertaken revegetation plantings, rock replacement, and coarse woody debris placement on site to enhance biodiversity values. The Project will see Barrer Hill restored with native vegetation.

We hope to see you there!

This event is intended for the Molonglo Valley Community.
