Tree planting for improved fish habitat at Regentville

Comments Comments

FISHING conservation charity OzFish Unlimited, in conjunction with Hawkesbury-Nepean Landcare Network (HNLN) and Penrith City Council Bushcare are working to improve the health and habitat of School House Creek in Regentville and are calling on local volunteers to help at a tree planting day, Sunday 8 November.

Across a number of weekends organised by HNLN, volunteers are needed to help restore the banks and bushland of the creek. Events will include activities such as water quality testing, frog identification and a nature walk.

School House Creek is directly connected to the Nepean River and is downstream from Glenmore Loch, with the River Flat Eucalypt Forest adjacent to the creek playing an important role for filtering urban runoff and reducing erosion, and sedimentation of the watercourse. OzFish says, the new shrubs will also increase invertebrate numbers that provide food for native fish in the waterway while also providing shade.

EVENT DETAILS: Tree Planting with Bushcare
Sunday 8 November - 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Martin Street, Regentville
Volunteers are asked to bring sun-safe clothing, plenty of water and gloves. Morning tea will be provided.
