Penrith – School House Creek Fish Habitat Restoration Day 4

February 14, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm AEDT

Help us restore the banks and bushland at School House Creek in Regentville.

The OzFish Hawkesbury-Nepean Chapter, Hawkesbury-Nepean Landcare Network (HNLN) and Bushcare group are getting their green thumbs out to help local waterways and they need volunteers to help them out!

School House Creek is a wildlife haven in Penrith. Last year, volunteers planted 250 plants to restore the banks and bushland of the creek, tested water quality, remove weeds. After the break, the weeds have sprung and we need help managing them to give the new plants a chance to grow.

In the morning there will be a short guided walk by Adrian from Cumberland Plain Restoration through the creek to discover more about the native wildlife in the creek and learn how the ecosystem works.

We will then spend some time watering, weeding, testing water quality and checking how much the plantings have grown.

8.00am-12.00pm 14th February

Martin Street, Regentville 2745 (directions will be provided closer to the day).

Morning tea will be provided. Please wear sunsmart clothing, a hat, sunscreen and bring plenty of water.
