Charlesworth Wetland Reserve Restoration
From early industrial area in the mid to 1950's to farm paddocks before City Council agreed to extend the estuary and allow water to enter this 20 ha area.
In 2005 the Estuary Trust adopted this massive project to restore this area to a functioning wetland again. Over 120.000 native plants have been placed in the ground to-date and there are more to come. Birds and invertebrates are thriving again and provided a stunning reserve for people to enjoy.
Being such a large size project we are always looking for more 'helping hands'. If you can spare the occasional Sunday afternoon come along and assist the volunteers. Tools and afternoon tea are provided.
Trust volunteers and local residents spend 2 hours every Sunday afternoon, all year round to perform tasks including planting, weeding, pruning, mulching or watering depending on the weather and time of the year. This project is supervised by the City Council Park rangers
Times; April – September between 2 – 4
October – March between 3 – 5pm
Meet at the Charlesworth Street Carpark to collect tools and tasks.
