Senior students from St Josephs Hectorville have developed a project in conjunction with Campbelltown Council and Adelaide Mt Lofty Ranges to adopt a patch of Fourth Creek.
Students have researched local native plants, grasses and bushes that are suited to this site. There is a diversity of grasses and low lying bushes that we have specifically selected appropriate for re-vegetation in this location.
In June, senior students planted seedlings by hand. Throughout the year they will maintain the plants by monitoring and watering them.
Sedges and smaller understory plants will be used to improve erosion control along the creek whilst minimising any flooding risks.
