Landing Lights Wetland National Tree Day Planting
Landing Lights Wetland is the largest remaining area of salt marsh, an endangered ecological community, left in the Cooks River catchment. Landing Lights in known locally as an urban bird hotspot and is home to several wading bird species and many terrestrial birds in the surrounding bushland. Eastern long-necked turtles, Blue Tongues, skinks and other wildlife has also been seen in and around the wetlands. At National Tree Day 2021 we will be planting shrubs and grasses along the boardwalk at the entrance to the wetlands. This area has recently been cleared of weeds and replanting will reintroduce habitat for small birds and other creatures.
