MAJOR revegetation works are happening at Wilgie Creek thanks to the Bridging the Gap’s Green Army team, Peel-Harvey Catchment Council staff and members of the community.

Momentum continues this month with significant Landcare works on the region’s largest biodiversity project, Rivers 2 Ramsar, being rolled out along the Murray River.

The teamwork is creating large scale improvements.

These include 900 seedlings planted over a hectare of land.

The project was funded from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.

PHCC chairwoman Jan Star said the Wilgie Creek revegetation was an excellent example of community Landcare actions.

“The Rivers 2 Ramsar project is about improving the connections between local bushland and rivers like the Murray and repairing these riparian corridors to provide habitats and food for native wildlife,” she said.
