Project update – December
This month we continued to work with the community, while applying CSIRO science to restore and improve key environmental values.
Strong autumn and winter rains and the enthusiasm of many volunteers from the Ginninderra Catchment Group, universities and environmental groups, enabled the planting of one thousand plants on the site as part of the Ginninderra grassland project.
Citizen science is an important focus for us and it was wonderful to have local people and groups participate.
This was a follow-up to the autumn burn grassland restoration trials set up across 13 sites (five of them on the CSIRO Ginninderra property) in the Ginninderra catchment in April 2016.
As progress continues in our search for a development partner, we have refined our vision and are in the process of setting goals, objectives, benchmarks and measures that will underpin Ginninderra and make it unique.
Our next update to the community will be at the Gungahlin Community Council Annual General Meeting tonight (Wednesday 14 December).
We remain committed to engaging with community groups and individual citizens as we move deeper into planning processes in 2017 and beyond.

We would like to wish everyone a happy and safe holiday season and look forward to communicating and working with you again next year.
