Fishers work to improve bass environment

BASS Sydney Fishing Club has just received approval from Penrith City Council to start work on regenerating a large section of the Nepean River riparian zone at Emu Plains.

The club, with assistance from Penrith Council, as required, and McCarthy Catholic College will remove many species of invasive weeds, including balloon vine, privet and lantana, and then replant with native vegetation.

The club and school will also start a seed bank , collecting seed from the site which will eventually be used to propagate native plants for replanting.

The project is expected to take between five and ten years to complete. Bass Sydney will be applying for grant funds and is also seeking sponsorship from suppliers to help defray costs.

Anyone wishing to lend a hand would be most welcome. Contact can be made through the club’s website:
