AS the Club to Club Project nears its completion, Muswellbrook Shire Council is already eyeing off its next mission.
Council will begin another exciting improvement task on Muscle Creek as part of its ongoing efforts to improve and enhance the environmental and recreational values of the local waterway.
The Fish Habitat Action Project will continue the work on Muscle Creek to enrich water quality, restore habitat and create more leisure opportunities for residents.
Works to date have included removing exotic vegetation, planting natives, controlling erosion, improving public access and installing educational signage.
The Club to Club Project is funded by the NSW Environmental Trust and was completed with the support of community volunteers, Muscle Creek Landcare, Muswellbrook Golf Club, Remington Motor Inn, Muswellbrook and District Workers Club and local contractors.
Council's sustainability officer Mick Brady said they were appreciative of the joint efforts of all on the projects and funding from both the NSW Environmental Trust and Department of Industry.
"We hope the community also see the many positive changes and start to utilise and enjoy the Muscle Creek area," he said.
The Fish Habitat Project is funded through the Recreational Fishing Trust's Habitat Action Grant Program from the Department of Industry.
