New biota bode at Silverstream East End

A new biota node has been dug out at Silverstream Reserve East End.

As soon as the biota node was made, the rains came and the pond filled.
The Rangers and Volunteers donned their gumboots to complete the task of planting out the edges with native wetland carex grass.

We had a bit more rain than we wanted this growing season (making it tricky to to keep on top of the weeds) but most of it has drained away – leaving a high water table to finish the summer. The native plants at Silverstream are loving it!

There is much to do to prepare for the new planting season with a goal of planting at least 5000 more trees and grasses at the East End this year.
