Rehabilitation and restoration work at the Curl Curl Lagoon has received a major boost after Council successfully applied for a $100,000 grant from the State Government.
The funding will provide a significant portion of the funding required to remove weeds and to plant native vegetation on the lagoon’s northern bank. This will mean a better habitat for fish and birds and will enable better movement of native fauna.
Extensive rehabilitation has been undertaken at the Lagoon over the years however it’s industrial legacy means it requires ongoing restoration. Council also acknowledges the great ongoing contribution of the Curl Curl Lagoon Friends who have been advocating for a cleaner, safer lagoon for almost 40 years.
Council secured the funds for its Restoring Pride in Curl Curl Lagoon project in the 2017/18 round of the NSW Environmental Trust’s Restoration and Rehabilitation Grant Program.
