Formerly a remnant salt marsh that had been infilled for grazing, this 20 hectare piece of farmland was returned to wetland habitat in 2002. Through the hard work of a team of Estuary Trust volunteers and City Council Park Rangers, the Charlesworth Wetland is now a successful feeding, roosting and breeding ground for many of the Estuary bird species, A series of ‘wader scrapes’ with pools, channels and islands attract wading birds and has turned this wetland into a bird haven, with walking tracks allowing public access around the western perimeter.
Today we’ll be doing a variety of tasks related to plant maintenance around the reserve.
We provide: tools, gloves, morning tea and a friendly team leader. Please wear sturdy shoes or boots, a sun hat and bring a water bottle. We recommend wearing long sleeves and trousers as protection from the sun and long grass. We’ll be helping out from 9:30am-12:30pm.
We’d love to see you there, so please register here. Contact Donna (email@example.com) 021 457 568 for more information.
