Some busy bees were out and about at the Narrawong East Street wetland on Saturday the 15th of July!

The Narrawong Wetland revegetation project is an initiative of the Narrawong District Primary School, supported by NGT, and once again it was time for some extra care, supplementary plantings, tree guard replacements and some general maintenance. Although the site looks very different to before the project started in 2012, it is still in need of ongoing attention and weed control.

A perfect day to be outside and give the local wetland some TLC.

A group of keen volunteers managed to plant just over 200 seedlings and worked hard to give last year’s plantings more space to grow. There was also plenty of time to observe the bird life and listen to the large numbers of frogs in the area.

There was plenty of evidence of the local wildlife. particularly the frogs articulated their presence

It was great to meet one of the local volunteers who has been working on this site for many years and to hear all the stories he had to tell.

A big thanks to everyone involved!
