ENVIRONMENTAL group APACE and Satterley Property Group have joined forces to salvage five local species, including native herbs, plants and seedlings.

With a target of 3000, plants and seedlings collected by members of APACE this month will be held at a nursery until they are transplanted into Satterley Property Group’s Honeywood Estate early next year.

Endemic species collected are most commonly referred to as Milk Maids, Pale Grass Lily, Blue Squill, Purple Tassels and Purple Lily.

More than 40 per cent of Honeywood Estate has either retained vegetation for conservation purposes or developed areas of public open space.
