Violet Town's Honeysuckle Creek will have native flora planted on its banks in an attempt to bring sugar gliders, possums and sacred kingfisher birds back to the area.July 8, 2014 3:09am
Native shrubs and trees are being planted along the banks of Violet Town’s Honeysuckle Creek to attract wildlife.
The Honeysuckle Recreation Environment Project chairwoman Sue Paton said the community decided to beautify the walking path along the creek and had begun planting wattles and callistemon trees.
‘‘We’re hoping to bring sugar gliders, possums and sacred kingfisher birds back to the area,’’ she said.
‘‘Before (we started) it was just a rundown creek with grasses along it and there wasn’t a walking track.’’
Ms Paton said the group was made up of 14 members who volunteered their time to revegetate the area.
She said the project had gained much support within the community, including Violet Town Football Club, whose members had offered to help on working bees.
