To recognise Threatened Species day the Streamwatch team in conjunction with Sydney Water organised a tour of Chullora Wetlands.
Sydney Water manages the wetlands and often uses it for tours to demonstrate to students and professionals how this ype of asset can be incorporated into an urban waterway and the significant benefits it generates.
The tour by Sydney Water’s Daniel Cunningham, Natural Asset Manager was an important aspect to the day. He provided a great background on the site and on the significance of urban wetland projects. It was a great morning out and another way we are successfully engaging with our Streamwatch volunteers.
