FROG HOLLOW REHAB SITE
This site has been ongoing for many years. It borders the western side of the football oval. It's hoped to show a history of progress at the site in pictures and a list of the many people involved in the rehabilitation of what was once a local rubbish tip. Todays news however shows a picture of the hard working volunteers and the great pile of branches and bags of dead grass collected from the site to prepare it for tree planting.
Species planted were Tuart, E.rudis and Marri. which should grow well in the fringing damp soils. Site Manager Barry Poole took us all on a tour and pointed out possible sites for a future walkway and bird hide to allow the public to safely get up close to the wild life living in the swamp. Notichis scutatis or tiger snake is commonly seen in the area so keeping snakes and humans separate is essential.
You're never too young to lend a hand. Under the watchful eye of Marian, our youngest member of the team settles the new plants in with a drink of water.
