  Restoring the habitat of Hollingsworth Creek Hollingsworth Creek is located in the township of Lismore in northern NSW. This small but important creek is a tributary of the Wilsons River. Historical clearing and land use activities have left much of Hollingsworth Creek devoid of any vegetation leading to erosion issues and lack of habitat for aquatic and terrestrial fauna species. Despite this, Hollingsworth creek does support a small remnant of Lowland Rainforest which is an Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) and also two threatened flora species Thorny Pea (Desmodium acanthocladum) and the endangered Sweet Myrtle (Gossia fragrantissima). WetlandCare Australia and Conservation Volunteers Australia, in partnership with Fifteen Trees and South Lismore Landcare have successfully undertaken a native revegetation planting to restore the vegetation community of Hollingsworth Creek. Restoring this site will enhance fauna habitat and improve the water quality in the Wilsons River catchment. Thanks again to Fifteen Trees for generously supplying the 400 trees which were planted by members of the South Lismore Landcare and the WetlandCare Australia Green Army team which is funded by the Commonwealth Government.
