Mullumbimby Creek is a tributary of the Brunswick River. Brunswick Valley Landcare have been actively rehabilitating the creek since 1996, by reducing the impact of weeds and strategically planting native vegetation in the riparian zone to improve habitat for Australian bass and teaching the local community the importance of healthy riparian zones for aquatic ecosystems. Key achievements of this project include: over 700 native plants planted with over 95 % survival rate, extensive removal of environmental weeds, further natural regeneration of endemic species, various community education activities undertaken to help foster understanding the need for healthy habitat, improved habitat for Australian bass and other species. Completed in 2006.
