This planting site has been slowly improving every year with persistent re-visiting and weed eradication. Intact grassy ground cover and appropriate over-storey plants have finally gained a foot hold and now out compete the nasty Spiny Rush, Fennel, and Boxthorn. The site has been beautified with the improved biodiversity. The local community has gained an appreciation of the values and importance of this site as an interface between the Coastal Saltmarsh and Swan Bay Ramsar Wetland. This project and site is testament to what can be achieved with community spirit and a persistent approach to weed control and land restoration.
