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