The Perry River, Providence Ponds and their tributaries are a rare type of waterway system, known as a Chain of Ponds. Healthy ponds not only look beautiful but provide a home for threatened plants and animals like the Golden Bell Frog, Dwarf Galaxias and Gaping Lee-Orchid.

The purpose of the Protecting our Ponds projects has been to protect and rehabilitate the Chain of Ponds by doing works in the following priority areas.

  • Lower Perry River
  • Upper Perry River
  • Providence Ponds
