Stage 2 in 2017 focuses on restoring habitat for threatened species in the area by further reducing glyceria infestations, installing fencing to remove livestock access to the creek and planting native species to reduce soil erosion.  Stage 2 funding is supported through NDLG and the Victorian Government's Community Volunteer Action grants.
