The Sixth Creek Catchment Group Inc was incorporated in 1999 and has actively worked since then as a group of volunteers with the following objectives as stated in our Constitution
Our management Committee meets monthly and we currently have approximately 40 volunteers who work at working bees on our individual Worksites. Last year the volunteers contributed 916 hours maintaining and revegetating the Sixth Creek Riparian Zone and managing contractors.
Although initially the Group was directly funded by Government we now completely rely on successful grant application and donations to fund our projects.
Our focus now is Re-establishing Biodiversity in Sustainable Riparian Habitats of the Sixth Creek
We have three worksites :
Burdetts Scrub is part of the Kenneth Stirling Group of Parks and is owned and managed by DEW through NP&WS.
Since it was burnt in the 2013 Cherryville Fire, and working in close consultation with the Park Ranger (currently Allira Taylor-Wilkins) , our Group has managed post fire recovery of the Park taking advantage of the mass germination of weeds by immediate follow up control of broom and blackberry as well as poisoning and removal of willows in the main watercourse.
