The Galbraith Creek Riparian corridor is a site that WCL has been progressively restoring since 2008. This creek discharges directly into Pioneer Bay and was extensively cleared for development. There have been 1000’s of local native plants installed at the site since WCL adopted the area, returning it slowly to the vegetated creekline that it was before clearing. In 2015/16 WCL staff, volunteers and the community planted over 2000 plants at the Galbraith Creeks. These activities were funded by grants—the 25 year Landcare Anniversary Grant and a Reef Catchments contract for 6 months maintenance of the site. Numerous visits by volunteers and two public community planting events (National Tree Day & Anniversary Celebration events) has seen the collection of 2kg of seed and plantings of endemic riparian plant species. This project is ongoing and has achieved further progress in the 2016/17 financial year.
