Due to the ongoing demands of infrastructure maintenance and replacement, a section of roadside vegetation was required to be cleared for installation of a new waterpipe. Across the Riverina, roadside vegetation along roadsides are critical corridors and habitat, so protecting and revegetating these areas is critical to their ongoing functionality and survival in the landscape.
Goldenfields Water organised 50 school students from local schools to attend a morning of tree planting at the site, with assistance from Murrumbidgee Landcare. The students got down and dirty (very literally) and completed the planting in record time! The students also learnt about the importance of roadside vegetation, and the species being planted and the birds that rely on them.
