The Apollo Bay Landcare Groups restoration of Wild Dog Creek has reached the next phase. Now that the willows have been removed in Wild Dog Creek near the estuary, the Apollo Bay Landcare Group has had a planting work party on Sunday, 22nd June to replace them with indigenous species.
A record number turned up and planted over 2,000 trees, shrubs and grasses, extending the area that has already been replanted with indigenous flora. It was great to see how well plants from previous working bees are doing. Thank you to Ken for organising the planting and to Carole and David for hosting the barbecue which followed, making a great ending to a very rewarding day. If you were unfortunate enough to miss all the fun or feel like doing it again, make a note of he next planting work party will be at Skenes Creek on Sunday, 27th July (National Tree Day)
