Fish Habitat Restoration at Emu Green Reserve

Volunteer to help with our fish habitat restoration project along the banks of the Nepean River!

We’ve been stockpiling logs and root balls at Emu Green Reserve as part of a fish habitat restoration project, and are implementing these into the banks of the Nepean River to assist in the restoration of native fish habitat and to increase refuge and resources for fish.

You’ll be planting trees to complement the fish habitat structures, removing weeds from the vicinity, and assisting with the general rehabilitation of the riverbank post-construction to help enhance fish habitat and general biodiversity, and encourage population expansion.

We advise that you wear sturdy shoes and bring a hat, water and sunscreen.

The event is free, but registrations are essential. Register at Eventbrite

The event days include:

  • Saturday 3 July (planting day)
  • Saturday 7 August
  • Saturday 4 September
  • Saturday 2 October
  • Saturday 6 November
  • Saturday 4 December

Penrith City Council is partnering with Bass Sydney Fishing Club with funding provided from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI)Fisheries’ Recreation Fishing Trust’s ‘Habitat Action Grant Program’ to restore fish habitat along the Nepean River.
