On Monday 2o July, SEE-Change ACT Inner North will be holding a public talk on Creating Urban Wetlands in Canberra’s Inner North.
Edwina Richardson from the Department of the Environment, Climate Change, Energy and Water will discuss a range of wetland initiatives for Canberra’s Inner North, including Banksia St, O’Connor wetlands, Flemington Ponds, Mitchell, and Lyneham and Dickson Wetlands.
Edwina is currently project managing the redesign & construction of the Banksia St, O’Connor wetlands which will serve to improve water quality in the Sullivan’s Creek catchment, increase urban biodiversity and provide an urban oasis. She is eager to consult with and engage the local community.
Come along and learn more about the Wetlands Project, and the positive impact it will have on your local environment. And for those interested in becoming more actively involved, come learn how!
