Great photo! Glad to see you spending so much time in the wonderful Molonglo :-). You should venture across to the other side of the river where the vertical habitat structures and large amounts of restoration works are being undertaken.

Thanks Richard, I'm just exploring at the moment. Do you mean the Barrier Hill area?

Yep! Barrer Hill.

Good tip.... I'll try to check it out sometime.
I notice that a lot of the new plantings are dying because of the dry weather we've had. Is there something that can be done to save some of them?

Thanks for that Michael. The contractor is required to achieve a 90% survival rate so they will be doing a re-plant soon. We will also look to increase the amount of watering they receive.

That's good to hear. There has been an impressive amount of plantings and I hope all the work is fruitful.
