Residents are invited to have their say at a free public information session on Monday 10 April in Greta about the management and conservation of Hunter River Reserve, Greta.

Cessnock City Council together with Hunter Council’s Environment Division is requesting the communities input on a number of on-ground activities that will assist with the management of the bushland reserve.  

These include:
Reserve access 
Recreational facilities
Walking tracks

The 8 hectare reserve contains Lower Hunter Dry Rainforest, one of the last remaining forests of its kind on the foreshore of the Lower Hunter. The reserve also contains important local historical and cultural values.  

The information session will also provide an opportunity to find out about the planned activities over the next three years. These include bush regeneration works to restore three endangered ecological communities, release of the Madeira Vine Biocontrol Beetle and information on future community events.
