Recent improvements to creeklands in Armidale
Armidale Urban Rivercare Group (AURG) (2001 - current)
Many volunteers in the local community have been involved since 2001 planting over 70,000 native plants along the Dumaresq Creeklands as part of the activities of the Armidale Urban Rivercare Group (AURG).
The AURG has built a valuable, long-lasting legacy through its vegetation works along the creeklands.
The group of hundreds of volunteers over the years have cleaned the creek, removed woody weeds, perfected planting and weed control methods and planted vast areas with native plants that are now growing very well.
