Wetland tree planting
This is the third National Tree Day event we have run at Central Coast Wetlands! This year we will continue to plant trees along Pioneer Creek, which forms a new wildlife corridor. The trees we planted three years ago are already above our heads and provide nice shade spots! Some of our planted trees are already flowering and attracting wildlife. Meanwhile in the understorey, we have seen native bandicoots move into our planted area. We aim to plant over 100 trees and shrubs like Eucalyptus, Banksia and Acacia. The planting area is located on the banks of Pioneer Creek in a former cow paddock. This project will improve stream health and provide habitat for native animals, including threatened species such as the Swift Parrot and Squirrel Glider.
