We all know just how important the environment is, and Frensham students continue to ensure they protect it.
This week students planted, mulched, watered and staked 122 trees and 266 grasses along a new swale created near the Frensham farm in order to improve native corridors.
Wariapendi Native Nursery in Colo Vale provided advice on the most suitable plant species.
This planting added to the 4000 tubestock already planted at Frensham.
Frensham is part of council’s ‘School for Wildlife Program’ and The Upper and Lower Holt in Frensham are key native corridors in the area.
The school is a keen supporter of initiatives that help improve habitat values of significant landscapes within the Southern Highlands.
Riparian zones are proven wildlife corridors irrespective of vegetation.
Species can migrate and have all their needs met if allowed healthy ample riparian zones.
