February 2023

Work continued in sections #1, #2 and #4 of the ecological restoration area. In section #1 new plantings were weeded. Overall, these plants are doing well. The #1 site is displaying good resilience, with only weedy grasses and sedges making an appearance. Natural regeneration of Hakea sp. and Leptospermum sp. along the edges of the good bush is occurring.

In #2 J. microcephalus seeds were removed. A grove of Privet along the embankment was treated with herbicide.

In section #4 a medium sized stand of Privet was treated with herbicide. Juvenile seedlings were removed. The new plantings (H. salicifolia) along the stream are doing well.

Streamwatch convenor reports that water quality was good.
