Following the formation of the HRA, the group applied for and were successful in receiving a Landcare Australia Bushfire Recovery Grant and a Lockhead Martin grant (total $25k) to support bushfire recovery in the Cudlee Creek fire scar.

These projects supported 13 landholders with site assessments, preparation and provision of suitable plants, guards and stakes and volunteer support for planting, building and installation of wildlife nest boxes.

The project engaged volunteers from the local area and many from metropolitan Adelaide, enabling an opportunity for people to make a real contribution to the landholders and the environment.
