Coastal Corridor enhancement project

The ‘Coastal corridor enhancement through community assisted restoration, propagation and revegetation’ Biodiversity Fund project is working on 23 sites over the northern NSW coastline from Crescent Head through to Brunswick Heads. EnviTE bush regenerators are working with a range of partners to enhance and protect high conservation value native habitat, undertake biodiverse supplemental plantings to improve structure , floristics and longer term ecological processes and undertake management of key threats such as weeds.


A Coastal Propagation and Revegetation Manual has also been produced as part of this project updating an earlier version following consultation with experts in plant propagation. The Manual is the main learning resource for this workshop and contains current information on ecological restoration, web based resources, project planning and site assessment, propagating plants safely, plant propagation techniques and methods and planting guidelines. It is hoped that it will serve as a resource to facilitate improving connectivity in the landscape.

As part of this project a free Plant propagation workshop will be held at Byron Bay off Bayshore Drive in the Byron Arts and Industrial Estate. On Saturday June 21st from 9.00am to 12.00pm. this workshop will provide participants with hands on experience in how to grow native plants for use in local plantings.

The Propagation and Revegetation manual will be provided to participants and can be freely downloaded from the EnviTE website using the following link :

Training materials, tools and Morning tea will be provided on the day
