was delighted to join the Southern Dandenongs
Community Nursery tree planting event, revegetation planting on Parks
Victoria land at the back of the Birdsland Reserve in the Lysterfield
Park. It was great to join locals to once again, revisit this site and
plant a range of canopy and understorey plants abutting the riparian area of
Creek, a local waterway significant due to its platypus population and
proximity to residential areas.
was also a concurrent planting event close by the nursery and Birdsland
Environment Education Centre for families with young children.
I can report that 500 plants went in at Lysterfield Park, whilst the children
planted 150 plants up at the Birdsland Education Centre in Birdsland. It was a
great effort by all.
been amazing growth of plants put in earlier plantings and this region is going
to provide a great buffer to Monbulk Creek into the future.
