About the presentation

Colette Livermore is the current Chair person of Palm Grove Ourimbah Creek Landcare Group which has been going for 22 years. Volunteers have restored about 60 acres of cleared, degraded land along Ourimbah Creek into a rainforest and wetland area. Three of the original members are still working at the site.

Colette is a retired doctor with an interest in Bird Photography which is how she first came to visit the site. When she retired four years ago Colette joined the Landcare Group.  She will discuss with us the successful CSIRO trial of releasing smut fungus into the site to destroy the Tradescantia fluminensis.
