Dr Peter Hendy, Federal Member for Eden-Monaro, Inspects Work of Green Army Crew

While some of us have been kicking back enjoying the summer break, a group of young and dedicated workers have been very productive at Mulloon.

A Federally funded Skillset Green Army crew spent seven days undertaking gully erosion control work as part of the Mulloon Community Landscape Rehydration Project. The crew were paid a visit by Dr. Peter Hendy MP, who was able to see first-hand the valuable regeneration work being completed in the local community, by local community members.

Based on Peter Andrews' recommendations, the crew built leaky weirs and contours to slow water flow and initiate the recovery of two tributaries of Mulloon Creek. The team built 20 leaky weirs in seven days.
