Merri River Tree Planting

Merri River Tree Planting

April 20, 2017 Even in it’s fledgling infancy, the Ozfish SW Victoria Chapter was keen to get some runs on the board. Around 20 enthusiastic of volunteers managed to plant an impressive 500 trees on the banks of the Merri River. This project will strengthen the river bank thus preventing erosion and improve water quality in the river. As these trees mature they will provide much needed habitat for aquatic and bird life.
