Fraser Coast Greening Guide

The natural environment of the Fraser Coast is facing increasing challenges related to changing climatic and environmental conditions. These issues include extended dry periods to extremely wet seasons, nutrient-deficient acidic and sandy, or sometimes deep, clay soils.

It is possible to change the environment within your yard or around your home by choosing resilient, local plant species, with the ability to cope with tough conditions.

The Fraser Coast Greening Guide explains how to utilise the abundant variety of local native plants available to make an attractive and functional habitat in your yard. It also includes information on non-native plants and what can be done to prevent them becoming invasive weeds in our local environment.

By using this guide, you can help repopulate local areas with more native plants, create habitat for native species, connect wildlife corridors and make a practical contribution to mitigating increasing heat.
