Member Field Trip: RESTORE BIODIVERSITY AND RESILIENCE TO YOUR GARDEN, 12 - 2.00pm, 19 March 2021
For NatureArt Lab members:
You are invited to come and experience a pilot project which is restoring the health of an urban pocket park in Weston.
Community members are restoring an endangered woodland community called the yellow box/red gum grassy woodland which once covered large areas of South Eastern Australia including this little park.
This project has been developed and led by Alice Hathorn over the past two years with outstanding results for weed reduction, introduction of indigenous species, and importantly, increasing levels of community engagement to restore ecological values to our urban areas.
Learn simple and effective ways you can apply the science from this project to return our indigenous biodiversity to your garden, nature strip, local park or laneway and restore resilience to the local environment we depend on to survive.
ACT Urban Woodland Rescue is a small landcare group formed in response to the urgent need to protect and restore Canberra’s ecology in the face of climate change.
This project is funded by an ACT environment Grant.
Costs for this field trip are covered by your NatureArt Lab membership, and will help to add plant biodiversity to the project.
