Turtle Creek 2017

Enthusiastic Jarrahdale school children at Turtle Creek

 

75 children from Jarrahdale Primary School planted 400 sedges at Turtle Creek, a long term restoration site in Jarrahdale.

The kids got a kick out of seeing the seedlings they have planted over the past 10 years replace the jungle of blackberry that was once there!

Four teachers and three parent helpers joined in, along with four members of the Jarrahdale Heritage Society.

This site is upstream of the Gooralong Brook site looked after by the Heritage Society. Melissa Matheson has been the main coordinator for the site over the years, an active community person and previous member of Friends of the Park (Gooralong).
