Four ecological vegetation classes (EVCs) exist in the reserve:
The first three of these areas contain vegetation that largely represents what would have been found before 1750.
The plant list exceeds 200 indigenous species with many of regional significance such as the Yellow Star. It forms a vital part of the bush corridor linking Ferntree Gully and Lysterfield National Parks.
The Reserve supports at least seven fauna habitat types including Ferny Creek, Riparian Forest, Grassy Woodland, ephemeral wetland. This diversity of habitats plays an important role in providing habitat for numerous native fauna species.
