Warriparri-Fordham Reserve corridor planting

Calling local residents and volunteers: would you like to help us create a biodiversity zone in Fordham Reserve? Friends of Sturt River Landcare Group and City of Holdfast Bay invite you to join volunteers, guides, scouts and residents as we plant 40 native species from the original woodland into this much-loved local reserve.
This event has now concluded.

We will mark World Environment Day by establishing 1000 plants, followed by nesting boxes for local birds and microbats. Volunteers will spend the morning planting, watering and mulching, followed by a delicious sausage sizzle lunch and a special guest appearance from Animals Anonymous.The biodiversity zone includes a broad selection of local-native plants, such as flowering eucalypts and canopy plants to increase shade for visitors to the reserve. Tall-medium shrubs will provide perches and shelter for larger birds, and scramblers, groundcovers, assorted host and nectar plants, as well as native grasses, will help to attract smaller birds, insects and lizards.
