City of Casey - National Tree Day Hands on for Habitat

The Grasmere Creek wetlands, at Berwick’s Cardinia Creek Parklands North, were created in 2020 as a joint project between Melbourne Water, Parks Victoria and City of Casey and were established to provide better water quality and floodplain connectivity as well as providing valuable open space for locals to use. A highly valued waterway in the Cardinia Creek Catchment the site is known for its significant plants and animals, including the rare and threatened Dwarf Galaxias fish and platypus downstream in the Cardinia Creek. We are aiming to plant between 8,000 and 12,000 trees, shrubs and tussock plants along the Grasmere Creek, connecting the newly established wetlands to existing vegetation. This new habitat corridor roughly follows the walking path linking Inglis Road and Buchanan Road. A great day out for the family, there will be tree planting, information stalls, a roving entertainer, free kids activities and a BBQ lunch. Learn all about our native fish and animals that call Grasmere Creek home.
