Planting day at Campbells Creek. Visitors are welcome. Morning tea provided. We'll be planting local native sedges, grasses and rushes to help stabilise the banks and restore the riparian environment in this locality. Wear gumboots, sturdy clothing suited for the weather on the day and bring gloves if possible. We'll provide the tools needed. Meet at the bridge over the creek on Princess St, Campbells Creek. There is plenty of space to park on the roadsides. We’ll then work downstream along the eastern bank of the creek.
Native sedges, grasses and rushes are important components of creekside vegetation that provide habitat and help protect soil from erosion. Several butterfly species depend on these kinds of plants as food for their larvae (caterpillars). Most of these plants will need to be planted close to the water's edge and as some of us may need to stand in the water, gumboots are advised.
