Inside the bird hideFROGS Landcare utilised a grant of $39,224 from Veolia Mulwaree Trust to assist with establishing the Goulburn Wetlands Area. The project involved sealing the main internal car park with bitumen and establishing crushed granite pathways for wheelchair-friendly observation areas within the wetlands. In addition to this work, plants were added along with the construction of a bird hide to encourage wildlife and enable users to enjoy viewing the natural area. The Wetlands project also saw the construction of areas to capture and efficiently treat urban storm-water runoff which assists in maintaining the natural balance of the area.

Peter Mowle, secretary of the FROGS Landcare said, “the construction of the pathways and the bird hide have been a significant benefit to users as they can now walk on level pathways and visit all the sections of the wetlands.

The wider community now has an additional passive recreational resource to utilise with walkers, cyclists, runners, bird watchers and tourists all utilising the pathways.”

Veolia Mulwaree Trust has been proud to assist FROGS Landcare to complete the Goulburn Wetlands project. The Wetlands area is now a place that can be enjoyed by the local community and visitors for many years to come.
