Project update – June/July
The community planting days and associated activities were the major focus at CSIRO Ginninderra in May/June. Over the course of two days, we were delighted to see more than 100 community volunteers including local residents, families and Cub Scouts turn out to help deliver this important initiative.
A big thank you to all planters, the Ginninderra Catchment Group, and our community partners for making these events such a success. The combined efforts in regenerating a shrub layer in the Box Gum Woodlands and Dry Forests at Ginninderra is most appreciated.
A special thanks also goes to Ngunnawal Custodian Wally Bell, who led the Welcome to Country and indigenous heritage interpretation at the May 27 planting day, held concurrently with National Reconciliation week.
As our effort to find a development partner continues, our project and science teams are working hard on CSIRO’s science contribution and all elements for consideration in a sustainable urban development.
We are looking forward to engaging further with various community groups and the broader community over the coming months.
