McLaughlin's Creek

The aim is for removal of weeds and encourage natives back into the area.

Over the past few years, the Sutton Landcare Group has made several attempts to replant a small area in Sutton, adjoining McLaughlin’s Creek. Two sets of 150 tubestock from Greening Australia were planted by volunteers. Unfortunately, the first planting died, because of heavier than expected frost (- 8 C◦!), and the recent drought has meant that only 30 plants from the second planting have survived – thanks to the efforts from members of watering regularly. Some of the survivors look healthy and have grown. Now we have had some decent rain we have decided to do a third planting in August/ September 2020. We will keep you informed when that will be and are happy with anyone willing to come and help plant, big and small!
