A busy work session was held on Sunday 20 February. Additional plants, Leptospermum polygalifolium (4), were planted in the west ecological restoration area. Unfortunately, our local swamp wallaby, a considerable gourmet, has taken quite a liking to our recent plantings, particularly the L. juniperinum; nice to have our work appreciated. Many Privet seedlings and a large area of weedy grasses received the appropriate treatment. In the swamp, several check-dams were installed to slow sediment drift and encourage pool development.

Streamwatch convenor reports that water quality in the upper tributary running off unformed Waratah Street is good: oxygen, phosphorous, chemical balance, freshness and turbidity.
