Nature On Your Doorstep
It has been two years since the REVIVE project at Pound Flat first began and today the area is showing tremendous signs of recovery thanks to the efforts of the Green Army, Blayney Shire Council and local volunteers. On Saturday 25 November project manager Brian Parker conducted a guided walk and talk around the Pound Flat site which attracted fifty one people. During his talk Brian spoke about the value of biodiversity and used photographs to show the dramatic results which have been achieved sofar. Back then it was a weed and willow infested waterway. Today many of the saplings which were planted as tubestock on the southern side are now at head height. The area is also fast becoming a refuge for native animals with Sugar Gliders and other native animals being sighted. We look forward to the next stage which will see the rehabilitation of the riparian zone bordering the Showground.
