Deniliquin's lagoon restoration project is moving forward.December 19, 2012 4:37am
A team of nine people are busily planting at McFaull Park lagoon this week, as part of the Deniliquin Wetlands Restoration Community Project.
Yarkuwa Indigenous Knowledge Centre, a partner in the project, has organised the planting team which started work last week.
About 10,000 native plants of six species are expected to be installed and the lagoon re-filled by Christmas.
The project will also see a pebble beach for birds installed.
A soil bridge has already been built to the lagoon’s island, and the edges of the lagoon have been re-shaped.
Planting team member Patrick Moore asked people to respect the project.
‘‘They (the plants) need a bit of care when they first go in,’’ he said.
‘‘Where the plants are, people have to stay off there and dogs and that will have to be kept clear.
‘‘Just while they start to grow a bit.
‘‘We just hope the ducks aren’t going to rip up our plants.’’
The McFaull lagoon work is stage two of the restoration project.
Organisers are hoping to gain funding for stage three soon.
Stage one saw four lagoons drained, pest fish culled and endangered southern pygmy perch introduced.
