The Popes Glen Bushcare Group set up a vegetation trial to determine what plants would survive in the harsh conditions of the weed infested silt flat. Armed with a successful species list, funding was sought and thousands of plants planted. Bird surveys have informed the revegetation process with bird habitat thickets unintentionally created from weed willow debris. Building on this positive outcome the group replanted around the woody debris with ground to canopy entanglement as the habitat creating objective.
