Jordan Springs Blooms into Life
The Jordan Springs project team joined forces with Braddock Public School students and Greening Australia to plant around 500 locally-sourced indigenous trees, shrubs and grasses as part of Schools Tree Day.
The cohort planted an open space area of approximately 8,670 sqm in a biodiversity corridor at Jordan Springs.
The biodiversity corridor is used for bush regeneration and habitat conservation for native animals in Cumberland Plain Woodland, an endangered ecological community.
A wildlife underpass links Wianamatta Regional Park to the biodiversity corridor, allowing smaller native animals such as possums, antechinus and native rats to move safely.
“We are working hard to make our community beautiful and healthy” a Braddock Public School student said.
“The team at Jordan Springs know the importance of working with the local community to make a difference and create positive environmental outcomes.
“It’s especially rewarding working with young people in the community, who will become our future builders, engineers and developers, and teaching them about the benefits of maintaining green corridors in urban areas” said Arthur Ilias, Lendlease Communities General Manager NSW/ACT.
