Norman Creek Catchment
Coordinating Committee

N4C has a single, primary purpose - improving the water quality within the waterways of the Norman Creek catchment area on Brisbane's South side.
Much of the work is "hands on" rehabilitation of the riparian zones of the various creeks within the catchment. This involves the removal of weeds, planting a range of native species and on-going maintenance.
The end result is a greatly enhanced habitat for creek dwellers and there is a significant flow-on to non creek dwelling fauna as well.
This compound effect promotes a healthy native ecosystem which is dramatically demonstrated around Bridgewater Creek in Wembley Park near the dog off leash area, the Demonstration Catchment Project site at Greenslopes and more recently around Arnwood Place both of these sites are on Norman Creek.
The new growth riparian flora along Norman and Sandy Creeks within Ekibin Park South, Arnwood Place and Barr Street parks is now inhabited by 63 species of permanent, transient and migratory birds !
