This project will continue the work that commenced last year with ReWilding Freshwater Creek and forms part of grant application by the Surf Coast and Inland Plains Network (SCIPN)
Funds from the Victorian Government but received through the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority are being used to complete a substantial planting (2,000+ seedlings) along Merrijig Creek. The focus is on linking existing remnant vegetation so that a wildlife corridor is established, and the riparian strip landscaped so that the Pigmy Perch (small perch - like fish) has a chance to repopulate the creek.
Graeme Stockton through a Surf Coast Shire grant plans to install, prior to this planting, several nest boxes in the existing remnant vegetation.
Morning tea and lunch generously provided by Torquay Rotary and TDLG
All equipment supplied by TDLG but please bring your water bottle
Details on access and parking will be outlined closer to the date
