    Project Description

    John Rogers Parklands and Cobradah Court Reserve

     The John Rogers parklands is situated at Mugeerabah, the reserve provides an important link in the Mudgeeraba – Hinze Dam Conservation Reserve system. It location provides connectivity in rich vegetation, habitat and water resource of the conservation area. Recently a hazard reduction burn has been implemented across the site. Hazard reduction burns pre-emtivley reduce fuel loads under controlled conditions this reduces the risk of wild fire. Fire assists in the reduction of dense stands of weeds and in the regeneration and rejuvenation of the native vegetation (in relevant ecotypes). Post fire weed control is key to the long term eradication of exotic species from these reserves. EnviTE bush regenerators are making frequent visits to the site controlling weeds (from the soil seed bank) as they germinate and prior to setting seed, this process acts to arrest the seed cycle.
